- With the annihilation of the BEF at Dunkirk, after Hitler gave Guderian the go ahead to advance on the British troops, preparations for the invasion, code named 'Operation Sealion' are made. With 75% of the RAF destroyed in northern France after Churchill sent more aircraft to aid the French, the Luftwaffe gain total air supremacy. Squadrons of Weser VTOL planes are built to be used as invasion transports. Groups of VS8 hydrofoil landing crafts are also prepared. Bombing raids throughout 1940 knock out most of the radar stations, and U-boats sink most of Britain's merchant fleet. The invasion is launched on March 3rd 1941. Squadrons of Me 109s and 110s tear through the sky, bombing and strafing anything that moves. Paratroops drop all over southern England, and VTOL planes carry more troops over. Landing craft beach and unload Panzers and more troops. The Royal Navy tries to intervene but is attacked by aircraft, which sink most of the battleships and carriers. The British fight fiercely, but cannot stand against the immense power of the German Reich. On September 16th, the British Empire surrenders both itself and its colonies to Nazi Germany. The Dominions of Canada, Australia and New Zealand vow to fight on. Many colonies, such as India, decide the time is ripe for independence. The Union of South Africa, always divided in its loyalties, formally sides with the Reich.
- With Britain out of the picture, and Spain practically a vassal state, Germany is prepared to invade Russia.
- Free British forces under the control of General O'Connor, decisively defeat Italian troops trying to invade Egypt.
- On March 17, 1942, just after the spring thaw made the USSR passable, the massive German armies invaded in Operation Barbarossa. The simple fact that the USSR was the last power on the continent gave Stalin an idea that they might attack, but everyone was unprepared for the speed and force with which Germany would attack. In just a few days panzer units advanced more than 100 miles, wiping out the Red Army and taking millions of prisoners. Though the Russian T-34s and KV1s were superior to the German Armour, the Russians use them in small 'penny packets' which are easily surrounded and destroyed. By July 1st German forces were approaching Moscow, Leningrad, and Kiev. On August 22nd, the Germans took Moscow. The first tank to enter the Red Square was one of the new Tiger tanks, which had just entered service. Once those three cities were taken and defensive lines established, German soldiers set up defensive lines around the cities and waited for winter. To the Ukraine in the south, troops continued to advance to the edge of the Ukraine before digging in, as the winter there would be less harsh and come later. During the winter of 1942-1943, the defending Red Army did all it could to regroup. Rather than continue to conquer and overextend German forces, the German army sent groups of scout troops to round up all citizens within 100 miles of the front lines, and along with the already-captured soldiers and captive citizens of the areas already conquered, these people proved to be potent hostages. Germany threatened to kill every last one of them unless Stalin surrendered himself, and Russia withdrew its border to the Ural Mountains.
- German army units under the control of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel decisively defeat the Free British forces in Egypt at the battle of El Alamein, securing the path for a quick push which parts the crumbling British Forces which are pulling back and captures Cairo, Alexandria and brings the Axis within reach of the Suez Canal.
- On February 7, 1943, the Japanese attack the American fleet at Pearl Harbor. They achieve complete surprise, and destroy 80% of the Pacific fleet, including all of its aircraft carriers.

- At the same time, the Japanese army goes on the offensive, invading the Philippines, Guam, Midway, Singapore and Burma.
- On July 4th, the Soviet Union unleashes its final strength in a massive summer offensive, code named 'Operation Pluto'. the offensive consists of several Siberian divisions, 30 new divisions hastily raised over the winter of 42-43, and large amounts of tanks being manufactured in the Ural factories, including KV1s, T34s, SU 85s and SU76s. the offensive takes the German forces off guard, pushing the German army back all across the front.

Valkyre 1, the first A9-12 rocket Booster becomes ready to launch on August 10; however at 36,000 feet the ship explodes, and when it crashes, it sets 200 acres of grassland ablaze.
- Increasing tensions between Germany and Japan.
- German GDP now higher than Japan's.
- Valkyre 2 lifts off on April 20th, coinciding with Hitler's birthday. Raumfahrer-SS Viktor Kraus and Raumfahrer-SS Wilhelm Tannert become the first men to reach outer space, and spend six days in space studying the effects of space on the human body. Both reach earth safely.
- Japanese-American Treaty: For mutual economic cooperation, Japan apologizes for the attacks of Pearl Harbor; the Empire promises to return the Hawaiian archipelago in 50 years. Meanwhile, the strict Japanization policy in Hawaii goes on.
- While publishing his revised Unified Field Theory, Albert Einstein criticizes the US government heavily for their foreign politics towards the Axis. His call, however, is neglected, especially because of the improving American-Japanese relations.
- May: Pan-Russian Uprising: "True Patriotic" Russians riot in Petrograd, Moskva, Omsk and Vladivostok. The Russian puppet regimes hesitate to put the uprising down. Ensuing bloody intervention by Germany and Japan worsens attitude of Russians towards the Axis.

- Donald Rumsfeld becomes the youngest US president at 36. He begins to secretly send weapons to the soviet partisans in the Urals, the Mudhagin in Afghanistan, the UVF in Ireland, Chechen militias and Ho Chi Minh's guerrillas in Indochina. In his State of the Union, he warns Germany and Japan that they will inevitably meet an enemy that will be superior to them in every way, and because Germany and Japan believe only warfare can defeat enemies, that will be their downfall. Germany and Japan both say that the new president doesn't know what he is talking about, and can not prevail.
- Valkyre 13 reaches the moon's orbit, and orbits the moon, but is destroyed upon re-entering earth's orbit.
- April 20: The Valkyre 14 becomes the first manned mission to land on the Moon. At 13:32:00 UTC, Viktor Kraus, the veteran Raumfahrer becomes the first man to land on the moon. After describing the surface dust, he stepped off the craft's footpad and into history as the first human to set foot on another world, famously describing it as "Es ist ein kleiner Schritt für den Führer, aber ein großer Schritt für das Vaterland." ("It is one small step for the Führer, but one big leap for the fatherland"). The lunar landing becomes a massive victory for Germany, and confirms their superiority in space.
- Ho Chi Minh's forces in Indochina win a spectacular victory over the Japanese forces at the battle of Short Tam.
- A Zeppelin, LZ 213 is destroyed upon landing at Lakehurst, New Jersey. Few are killed as the new Zeppelins are filled with helium. Many suspect American sabotage, a reverse from the Hindenburg incident of 1937.

- Rumsfeld is caught getting drunk on an official visit. Der Sturmer and the American late night comedians tear into him, with Der Sturmer oddly agreeing with Jewish late night comedians on the nickname "Rummy".
- The Nordland Civil War begins, when Swedish separatists revolt. Quisling is caught and executed to a cheering mob.
- NLA troops capture the Telemark heavy water plant, cutting off heavy water supply to the nuclear reactors in Europe. This incensed Germany, who up until that point had remained neutral, and may have even recognized the new regime.
- German Horten 28 stealth jet bombers bomb Stockholm with Nerve gas, killing thousands. At the same time, German army units drive into Sweden, smashing the rebels and ending the Nordland civil war.
- The German embassy in Washington lodges a complaint, and demands the halting of weapon supplies to resistance groups, which is strongly denied by the US. However many in the US see the use of money to fund resistance groups as a waste of taxpayers money. Especially the Hippies want to find a rapprochement with Germany and Japan, despite the atrocities they committed.
- Japan puts its first man into space, carried by a Shiki 64 Rocket.
- A major demonstration in America by hippies against supporting the guerrilla war is broken up with force. Footage of the police and National Guard beating up the Hippies is shown all over the world. The Axis powers capitalize on this and use it in their propaganda.

- Due to the civil disturbances, Rumsfeld halts the shipment of arms to the various partisan groups.
- Adolf Hitler dies of a stroke, age 85, on July 17th. There is mourning all over the Third Reich. Himmler becomes the second Führer of Germany. Many hope this will help thaw the cold war.

- By nothing short of miracle, Donald Rumsfeld wins the presidency.
- The quarantine of San Francisco ends.
- America finally puts its first man into space, with the Mercury 4.
- A series of minor border incidents take place between Italy and the Pan Arab Coalition.
- Germany begins construction of the new Von Braun Mk II space station. This station is 35% bigger, with an Integral Nuclear Missile Launcher, defense Anti-missiles, and the most powerful computer in the world installed on it. This alarms the Japanese because they allegedly weren't consulted beforehand.
- A rocket carrying key components for the Von Braun Mk II explodes at the launch pad. The Germans begin to suspect that the Japanese were responsible. The mastermind of the attacks is unknown to the present day, but relations between the Japanese and Germans are the worst so far.
- Unit 731 accidentally release a virus which mutates and spreads across Asia, killing half a billion people. Many Germans note that EVERYONE who was infected died, even the supposed master race fell victim to the virus, and this changes normal German outlook. The Nazis make a botched attempt to censor this information about entire "Aryan" towns being wiped out by the virus, which cause many Germans to start feel disillusionment about Racial Hygiene. The Japanese are outraged after the same propaganda says that the Japanese were more susceptible to the virus because of their race, which hampers relations between them and Germany.
- The Eight days war between the Italian Empire and the Pan Arab Coalition. Germany stops the war, fearing a major collapse in alliances, remembering that a house divided cannot stand.
- Seizing the initiative, Rumsfeld begins funding partisans again.
- After a Japanese/German inquiry into the infection's source, they determine Unit 731 was the source of the infection. As a punishment, it is disbanded and all the viral samples are to be destroyed. This strains German-Japanese relations very seriously and people on both sides fear total annihilation.
- Over fears of a nuclear war, Rumsfeld calls a conference at Honolulu, where the US, Germany and Japan agree to limit the amount of WMDs they possess. It also includes a clause (on Japan's insistence) that states all nuclear weapons in space are to be decommissioned. Germany however refuses to De-Commission the Von Braun stations, citing them as the key to Germany's defense policy, though they do remove the nukes from the stations, and another one (on Germany's insistence) that states all production of viruses for warfare are to be banned. This treaty confirms the German-Japanese Axis is dead.
- The first defence satellite is put into orbit by Germany.

- ATO is expanded to include the Caribbean and other central American Nations.
- Germany and Japan are on the brink of war after a false alarm regarding a Von Braun test which is mistaken for a missile. German-Japanese relations are at their tensest so far. There are even reports of skirmishes on the borders between the two countries.
- Congress passes an amendment to the Constitution limiting any future president to three terms (Ron Paul is exempt as he is the incumbent).
- The Black Civil rights movement begins, with blacks seeing the Nazi victory as slowing integration.
- Ron Paul calls another conference at which Germany and Japan agree to reduce their nuclear arsenals by 1993.
- America launches its Space Transportation System (STS) or Space Shuttle, using stolen plans from the A45. The space shuttle is similar looking, though with no defensive armament, a larger payload, and the program is oriented towards science.

- Germany and Japan by this stage have reduced their nuclear arsenals by 30%.
- The Second Latin American War breaks out between Argentina and Bolivia, when Argentina sees that ATO is too distracted to deal with their plans. Germany expresses its outrage because they were not consulted about this plan.
- The USA (with the help of defecting German scientists) finally get a man to the Moon on Mercury 19. However, Germany still has crushing orbital supremacy.
- Brazil gets its act together and enters the war on the side of Bolivia. Because they do not want to get dragged into this mess again, ATO finally gets asks Germany to call a conference at Asunción in order to rein in Argentina.
- Argentina hits Rio de Janeiro with an Atomic Bomb. This is met with shock and outrage by ATO.
- The conference at Asunción ends the Second Latin-American war.
- An A45 taking building supplies to the Mars lander is destroyed 40 seconds after takeoff, due to problems with the nose cone heat shielding. Suspicions fall on the US, and this causes a fall in diplomatic relations.

- Ron Paul loses the elections to Al Gore.
- A race between America, Germany and Japan begins to find the Higgs Boson which many believe would turn the tide in the already deadlocked cold war. Unlike other projects, Germany cannot use slave labour since their RHIC is the most complicated of all the others' designs.
- Germany shoots down one of their wayward satellites with an anti-satellite missile. This is deigned to demonstrate the massive superiority of German missile technology.
- A new president is elected in Mexico, who is a secret member of the Liberation army. He tries to secede from ATO, but some CIA networks fabricate a corruption scandal force him to resign.
- Brazil becomes a member of ATO, with some reservations from Venezuela, seeing that ATO nearly broke up because of bad blood between the two countries.
- Valkyre 23 reaches Mars orbit, and Raumfahrer SS Heinrich Kraus, the son of Viktor Kraus, becomes the first person to land on another planet. His immortal words "Dies ist nicht nur für das Vaterland und den Führer, sondern für alle Völker und Nationen der Erde" ("This is not just for the Fatherland and the Führer, but for all Peoples and Nations of Earth") show the changed times.
- A German geologist expresses concern about 'peak oil' being close on the front page of The Times. Al Gore heeds this warning and orders more research into alternatives to hydrocarbons. Germany, who has been doing research on artificial oil since WWII, also begins to find alternatives.
- A German Airliner is high jacked, but shot down by a ME 562 before it can crash itself into anything.
- The Japanese emperor announces that Japan is going to build the Hideyoshi station to counter the Von Braun network. This ensures that Germany and Japan will never be friends, let alone allies, again.
- A Plebiscite is held in Hawaii per the trade agreement of 1953. Contrary to all expectations, Hawaii votes to remain in the Japanese Empire. The reasons for this are that Japanese heavily settled in Hawaii, to the point where for every one white Hawaiian, there are seven Japanese Hawaiians.
- The German geologist warns that peak oil has come, and that production will only decrease. Germany puts more research into artificial oil.
- Japan gets its first man on the Moon, which scares Germany as it fears its monopoly in space could be challenged.
- Al-Qaeda deploys a bomb which sinks the Tirpitz, which was preserved after WWII.

- Iranian troops are fired upon by Militant forces, the president of Iran calls upon other members of the Pan-Arab coalition to aid them in suppressing the rebels.
- The Hideyoshi space station is 80% complete.
- The Hideyoshi is hit by an unknown object and badly damaged. Suspicion falls on Germany, though they deny any knowledge of the incident.
- Germany and Japan find themselves on the brink of full-scale war. Al Gore calls a conference in Anchorage at which all powers agree to destroy at least 50% of their nuclear weapons (Germany still insisted that the Von Braun stations be allowed to remain operational).
- Angered by this development, General Wilhelm Schmidt and several hardliners in the Waffen SS attempt a coup to oust Goebbels, feeling he is too soft on America and Japan. SS troops storm Göbbels' mountain retreat and kill him, but General Maria Brunig of the Wehrmacht personally kills him at the steps of the Reichstag with a Luger. She takes command of the German Reich, and continues on Goebel's plans for reforms. In her first speech to the Nazi party she said that "Our ancestors were wrong in believing that world conquest is possible. We must learn to co-operate with other countries, or perish in a nuclear fire."
- Italy and the Pan-Arab Coalition, after a bout of brinkmanship, engage in a nuclear war which lasts 6 hours. At least 30 million people are reported dead, and a large amount of Arabia is irradiated for decades to come. This puts more pressure on Germany (who by now have artificial oil, but it is in the experimental stages and can only be produced in an air-free environment.
- General Brunig asks for Gore to send aid to the impoverished Italy and pan-Arab coalition.

- Tom Tancredo wins in a landslide against Barack Obama in a 40% popular margin and a 500 electoral point margin. General Brunig sends a letter of congratulations to Tancredo hoping that he "...will ensure that peace will last between our two countries."
- Reinhard Himmler causes alarm when he predicts that by 2010, the Malayan oilfields will begin to dry up. This sends Japan into an all or nothing race to create alternative energy.
- Pro Japanese police in Australia Open fire at a crowed of protesting university students in Brisbane, Queensland. The Japanese claim that the students belonged to the "SYA" or Socialist Youth Alliance, who have been protesting about Japanese occupation, and have been staging terrorist attacks on police and Japanese military in the area. 121 students were killed in the bloodbath, most significantly, six German exchange students.
- On September 25th, the Reichstag is destroyed by a homemade explosive device and it is consumed by fire. An hour later, the Governor of Bohemia and Moravia, Otto Spielberg, is assassinated in a military parade in Prague. A group known as the Czech Nationalist Liberation Front takes responsibility for the actions, and mentions in a television message that they intended to sink a Kraft durch Freude ("Strength through Joy") cruise ship in the Mediterranean. The SS later identifies the ship as the SS Von Steuben, which is carrying mainly women and children on a cruise to Greece. An evacuation of the Von Steuben is quickly implemented. However, panic ensures and many end up in the water. Whilst a rescue is implemented by the Italian Navy, the bomb explodes, sinking the ship within minutes. At exactly 12 noon, nationalist insurgents attempt an uprising in Prague in the middle of the confusion. They quickly take most of the city and intern most of the captured Germans. As expected, most Czechs in the city join in. Thus is the beginning of the European Nationalist Uprisings.
- On September 26th, The Czechs remain in control of Prague, and it is claimed by German state television that over 150 German officers were slaughtered by the Czechs overnight. General Brunig announces that German forces will enter Czechoslovakia that afternoon and crush the rebellion. However, overnight, it is revealed that hundreds of Czechs serving in the German army rebelled and murdered their German officers, thus being in control of many German weapons. However, in the South, a recently obscure terrorist group, the Albanian Nationalist Army, who took advantage of the confusion, launched a coup in Albania, which had been virtually under Italian occupation since 1939, against the pro-Italian and Pan-Arab-Coalition administration. They declared Albania an independent kingdom. However, the Italian armed forces, under Giuseppe Bertolucci, staged an invasion of the country. In the North, the Czechs now control a large portion of the country and almost overnight got an army, and air force and were ready to fight the Germans. The Germans cross the border of Czechoslovakia later that afternoon, but are met with a bloody reverse halfway to Prague, as the Czechs took over many German weapons in the uprising, including advanced surface-to-air weapons, which prevents the Luftwaffe from gaining air superiority around Prague. Matters were made worse for the Germans when there was a revolt by Polish recruits serving in the German armed forces in the port of Danzig, when they stormed the brand new heavy battle cruiser "Graff Spee", and began to bombard German positions. The newly elected US president Tom Tancredo calls for moderation on both sides, but the US is at a loss as to how to respond to the crisis.
- September 27th, with the situation growing worse for the Germans, General Brunig declares a state of national emergency, and martial law in all German cities. The so called German "Intervention" in Czechoslovakia turns into what can only be described as a full-scale invasion, with Prague being bombed and more threats to do so, even with nuclear weapons. However, the Czech rebel continue to fight. At 9am, General Brunig asks for Hungaria to intervene. However, the Hungarians hesitate, mainly because of the strong anti-German sentiment held there, regent Harold Horthey, rejects the proposal. Meanwhile, the polish rebels continue their uprising in Danzig which intensifies after a bomb explodes in the German naval bases ammunition dump. Killing over 2000 German servicemen and rendering the base useless. To the south, the Czechs respond to German threats by stating that they have planted bombs on ferries taking passengers across the Straits of Malmö to Nordland. The Germans back down from the threats.
- September 28th: The insurgents suffer a severe blow when the Polish in Danzig suddenly surrender without warning. Nonetheless minor fighting continues in most of the country that day. Another blow is handed out when the Italians take back Albania after the short and bloody invasion. Also, the SS uncovers a plot by an illusive resistance group known as the Dutch Front, to blow up the dikes holding back water from the North Sea. Leader of the group Stijnus Schotte is captured, but somewhat ironically not shot unlike normal SS protocol, probably not to anger the US. In the East, the Czechs continue to hold out, with the result being a fierce, but indecisive battle at Plzen, south of Prague. The Czechs then announce, somewhat embarrassingly, via German state television that they have General Brunig's granddaughter and niece hostage. The two were backpacking in the country at the time of the uprising. However, under the veil of bloodshed, talks are in place, with the Czechs demanding a parliament and recognition of Czechs as Aryans. Initially, the Germans reject both, but agree to a parliament, but reject the idea of having Czechs recognized as Aryans, which means that all candidates in any hypothetical parliamentary election would have to be pure ethnic Germans. Overnight, fighting dies down.
- Tom Tancredo moderates at a conference in Reykjavik, with General Brunig and the Insurgent leader, Janos Kinzaski, agreeing that the problem areas shall have parliaments. But there's a catch. To be in a parliament, one has to be an Aryan (that was Brunig's way of getting around the accords).
- Japan reports the first Malayan oilfields have dried up, and begins to blackmail Russia into sharing its oil.
- Germany perfects the formula for artificial oil, but there are very heavy problems, namely there are few facilities which can produce the chemical because of the immense pressure that they have to be put through.
- Hans Speer dies in mysterious circumstances at his villa in the Ostmark territories. His autopsy concludes that there is a new disease that has broken out. As a result there is a massive quarantine of the area around his home, and all military units are put into lock down in their respective bases.
- Nerve gas and nuclear weapons are used to contain the outbreak in the Ostmark territories. The outbreak has killed upwards of 100 million people.
