    Emperor of Germany

    Son of Wilhelm II. In his early reign, a Peace with Honour was signed with the Union of Britain (1942). After sinking of SS Kaiser Wilhelm (considered by syndicalists as a false flag operation), he renewed offensive on May 1, 1945. He is known for issuing direct orger for the German Strategic Air Forces to drop a nuclear warhead on the city of Dover and invade place with paratroopers and marines - which is considered as a direct cause of radiation poisoning among them and increasing rate of cancer among Britischkorps veterans.

    During his reign, German Marinekorps invaded Australasian Confederation (syndicalist since 1936)

    During his tenure in power, Reichstag voted in favour of the Kaiserbund Program - division of Mittelafrika colonial state into smaller, native countries ruled semi-independently by local, German-educated African leaders with Kaiser as a head of state, German interference into foreign policy and army.

    I had no idea about naming Himmler's corporation and did not know that HFC is canon. I corrected it.

    Unless they created an entirely new institute for him, Heisenberg would likely do most of his work at th Kaiser Wilhelm (today Max Plank) Institute.

    They created brand new Institute for development of nuclear weapons. After shortlived border war against Commune of France in 1937 (when playing KR 1.9 on DH, CoF attacked Switzerlqnd, I joined them in a war, then sent ultimatum to stop the war and Communards agreed), generals of reformed Generalstab realized that a new enemy would be tougher to defeat than a previous one, twenty years earlier. Kaiser supported those who wanted Mobility Focus (Blitzkrieg) to achieve quick victory through coordinated panzer and motorized infantry attacks. In addition, he had invested in nuclear physics, especially when AV-voting scientists devised the most powerful bomb world even seen.

    Beacause Germans did not want this to happen. British and Canadians are in war since Icelandic Crisis of 1937. UoB made peace with Germany on 1942 (Peace with Honour) and Kaiser used three years of peace to build up military, marines, paratroopers and carrier fleet. On May 1, 1945 nuclear bomb was dropped on Dover. Few hours later paratroopers landed in the city, while marines invaded beaches. During next week 1 million soldiers came to the city (I think that tens thousands of them should die due to radiation poisoning) - most of them grouped in 60 panzer or motorized divisions, with rest being marines, paratroopers and regular infantry used to garrison provinces. Within next month an island fell completely and was divided between England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Kaiser did not believe in efficiency of the house of Windsor, so he had appointed Louis Ferdinand as a king to keep the Isles in the Mitteleuropa.

    French police clashes with workers' and students' demonstration in Paris (May 1968).

    More than twenty years after Second Weltkrieg, French population dissatisfied with capitalism, overreaching German influences and social conservative authoritarian governments took over Paris, proclaimed withdrawal from Mitteleuropa and asked both Combined Syndicates of American and the Union of Soviets for help. French government failed to suppress revolution - by May 1968 national economy was brought to halt by general strike, loyalist police officers were lynched, German citizens were either expelled or harrassed. Some parts of military switched sides. Inability to cointain syndicalist rebellion caused nationalist government of Germany to crush it. 500,000 soldiers, 1,200 aircraft, 1,600 tanks, 25 aircraft carriers, 40 battleships (most of them from the First Weltkrieg) and 10 battlecruisers were used to suppress demonstration and perform a show of force against anyone who could be rebellious.​

    Swiss Mountain Infantry patrol in the Alps.

    On February 14, 1937 pro-French socialists won local election in Romandy, a French-speaking region of Switzerland. New local governments were disbanded by national government to prevent Communard infiltration of state legislatures. Commune of France issued direct ultimatum to allow elected governments to work and to held local plebiscite about possibility of joining France. There was no response - Swiss government mobilized 850,000 soldiers (February 17) and began preparations for a defensive war. Two days later, Red Army of Workers', Soldiers' and Peasants' crossed the border and attacked Swiss garrisons, followed by a German ultimatum, which had forced them to withdraw on February 18. 656 Frenchmen and 45 Swiss were killed during first two days of a war.

    Switzerland later provided assistance to Germany during invasion on France.​
