Images from The Anglo/American-Nazi War


Actor Robert Duvall won an Academy Award for his portrayal of LTC. Hal Moore in director Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 WWII classic "We Were Soldiers". The film, based on Moore's autobiography "We Were Soldiers Once...And Young" also starred Martin Sheen as AP Photographer Joe Galloway, who was attached to Moore's 1st Battalion of the 7th Cavalry during for most of the war. The film became well-known for the famous sequence of the Air Cav's assault on the medieval fortress of Bergues during the opening hours of Operation Gravel.

F-86F of the "Flying Tigers" in 1956

After the start of the Hot War, and with Chiang Kai-shek wanting to thanks the Americans for helping to put him in power (and to increase its nation influence in the postwar in Europe), the Republic of China send a Destroyer Division and the "Flying Tiger" Group, with the same color scheme was the former "American Volunteer Group" in mid-40's. Both the naval and air forces were deployed in the Mediterranean Campaign, with the first bases in North Africa before been redeployed in Sicily, and after the Italian switching sides, in Northern Italy. The Flying Tigers initially deployed two squadrons F-86F Sabres and one of C-82 Packet until late 1958, when they were replaced by F-100D Super Sabres and one of C-130E Hercules.

General William Westmoreland, US Army, speaks with tankers from the 1st Australian Armoured Regiment as they rest and refit near Eindhoven. Westmoreland's 15th Army Group was a true Allied endeavor, consisting of the I Marine Expeditionary Force (consisting of the 1st/4th/5th Divisions, USMC), the 1st Canadian Army and the 2nd Australian Army.

Soldiers of the Italian 8th Alpini Regiment attached to the 22nd Infantry Division wait to board transport in Belluno. The Alpini regiments were some of the finest in the Italian Army and were rapidly brought up to Allied standards once the Italians became full co-belligerents near the end of the war. The 8th Alpini was particularly effective in out-maneuvering their former German allies and capturing several key passes along the border of what had been Austria.

Gene Hackman as Polish General Stefan Rowecki and Sean Connery as Canadian Field Marshall Guy Simonds in a scene from 1983's "Downfall", directed by Richard Attenborough. The film, based on author Cornelius Ryan's 1968 history of Operation Digger "The Last Battle", was the subject of controversy due to its unflinching depiction of Allied troops engaging in no quarters urban combat, but was later praised by many veterans groups for its accuracy and won 7 BAFTAs.

Makes it even more gut-wrenching that the Guomindang ended up overthrown by that loony Cabal...

The new of the nuclear weapon was deployed into Korean territory is condemned by Indian representative to UN Supreme Council and is even questioned by several American allies, including Philippines and Brazil. The Indian representative adopted a resolution on March 1972, call upon for a condemnation of the usage of nuclear weapons and the cessation of Western aggressors. However, the resolution is vetoed by U.S. and Australian permanent members.

A Grid Earth map of the approximate location of The IRS-1C Incident or as it became known in non-A4 intelligence circles, "The South Indian Flash".

On September 22, 2003, an unidentified double flash of light was detected by the Indian Space Agency satellite IRS-1C near the uninhabited Crozet Islands Archipelago. The islands had originally been under the authority of the French prior to 1939, passed to Canada as part of the Treaty of Barcelona and were quietly leased by the United States in February 1991. The satellite was part of the Indian Governments ongoing attempts to monitor A4 nuclear usage in the wake of the controversial bombings that marked the end of the Korean Intervention and contained various sensors designed to detect nuclear explosions. The satellite reported a double flash, the brightness of which was characteristic of an atmospheric nuclear explosion of 20 to 30 kilotons, but Indian scientists were baffled when no corresponding increases in radiation were detected by the satellite network or clandestine readings taken later by submarine.
Inquiries were made informally by Indian Intelligence assets around the A4 without much success, ultimately leading to a famous "exchange" between the Indian and American ambassadors during a UN Supreme Council meeting where the American ambassador maintained a stony silence during the entirety of the questioning from the Indian representative. After the Prussian War, it was quietly leaked to the Washington Post that in fact, the IRS-1C incident was a successful live fire test of kinetic orbital weapons from O'Hare NAS.

Once German troops began pulling back to the Inner Frontier, Allied formations found themselves advancing vast distances in the course of a single day. The Commenwealth units brought ashore during Operation Crossroad advanced nearly 900 miles across southwest Ukraine and the General Government by D+42, oftentimes outpacing their supply lines.

Pery Broad (1921-1962) was a brazilian SS member, being a NCO in the Auschwitz death camp in the 1940s. After being decomissioned in 1952, he worked at a farm of an retired German official in Ostland until his recomission as part of the volkssturm in 1959, where he took part on a doomed attack against the Argentinian division that finished the encirclement of Berlin where he got captured.

Pery photographed in 1961, during the post war trials

With the entire german high command and every high ranking nazi officers having comitted suicide or died in combat, low level officers like Pery had to receive justice in their places. Pery himself was trialed by a brazilian judge dispatched in europe before being condemned to death. His trial and execution where revived in the 1991 film "O traidor", by the controversial left wing historian Sylvio Back, who got criticized for portraying Pery in a humanized vision.

Vidkun Quisling (1887 - 1958)

Quisling was infamous leader of National State of Norway under German occupation. He was one of most loyal collaboratists of Germany. He williungfully abided all of orders what came from Berlin, no matter how damaging these were for Norway and Norweigian people. His regin saw brutal oppression of people and extremely harsh arctions against reistanse movements. He too sent lot of Jews to Germany despite that he knew what for them would happen. Fortunately many had enough to luck and managed to flee to Sweden. Quisling became quickly very hated man in Norway and faced several assassination attempts, probably more than any other collaboratist leader. Quisling too made German mandatory in shcools and anyone couldn't hold state offices if he couldn't speak German. His reign too saw expulsion of Sami people and Finnish speakers to Finland. Noway became extremelyt dependent on German economy and it damaged greatly Norweigian economy.

During Hot War Quisling gave order (of course under orders of Germans) drafted every man on suitable age and health to national army and many too were enforced to join to SS-Waffen. Norway lost men in such degree that some villages were totally emplty from young and mid-aged men. This just made Quisling even more unpopular. When Allies landed to Norway in 1958 and managed to liberate most of Norway, many cities rose to revolt. Oslo too saw violent riots and Quisling tried to flee. Quisling probably tried flee to airport and fly to Berlin to safety. But this failed. Quislingä's car was stopped by road blockade and people dragged Quisling and his German "advisor" from car. THey both were beaten to death.


Anton Mussert (1894 - 1962)

Mussert acted as leader of Dutch Reich Comissariat. He was totally under German influence but Netherlands had too much of autonomy as long as the place abided nazi ideology and sent troops for German war efforts. Mussert did everything what Berlin said and he too practised very brutal actions against Dutch resistance movement. After Allies liberated the Netherlands in 1958, Americans arrested Mussert.

In 1961 begun trials against Dutch collaboratists. Mussert was prosecuted from high treason, war crimes and crimes against humanity. Mussert tried explain how he tried just work for Netherlands. He too denied what happened for these Jews which he expelled to Germany. But prosecutos found much of documents which proved that Mussert was very aware of fate of Dutch Jews and these German Jews who fled to the Nethelands. Mussert was declared guilty war all of accusations and sentenced to death by hanging. He was hanged in 15 April 1962.

The Cathedral of Notre-Dame was the first historical site designated for destruction by Einsatzgruppen during the razing of Paris. The Cathedral had been undergoing an effort to remove soot and grime despite the shift to the Hot War and the SS forces arriving to set demolition charges found themselves temporarily overwhelmed by a group of incensed French craftsmen (armed only with hand tools) led by the Monsignor overseeing the project. This brief rebellion was put down by German reinforcements almost immediately with no French survivors.

The wreck of the Kriegsmarine H-Class battleship Götz von Berlichingen was discovered by American oceanographer Robert Ballard off the southeastern coast of Iceland in June 1996. Ballard, famous for his discoveries of the RMS Titanic in 1985 and the USS Intrepid (CV-11) off Yukushima Island in 1991, was astounded at the amount of battle damage present on the German ship. The last capital ship to be sunk during the Battle of Iceland, the “Iron Fist” was struck nearly two dozen times by a combination of conventional bombs, guided missiles and torpedoes from American carrier aircraft over the course of an 18 hour running battle.
Phillipine Marines prepare to assault Ducal Castle in Stettin, April 15, 2007. Ducal Castle had long been the headquarters of the Polish occupation forces in Stettin and was the primary target of a “suicide squad” of Prussian insurgents during the first stages of the Uprising. The castle was retaken with heavy loss the morning of the 16th, only for the sudden evacuation of Allied occupation troops that evening in preparation for the orbital strike.

Canadian paratroopers from Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry regiment examine a captured M1 Thompson in Norway during Operation Thorn Bush. After the Soviet surrender in 1943, the Germans took possession of all almost of the Soviets stores of Lend Lease equipment. It was common for fortress troops from the occupied nations to be issued captured Allied equipment to hopefully sow confusion amongst the eventual invading forces, but also that the lack of spare parts/ammunition for their weapons would reduce success of a potential mutiny.

Commonwealth Force X steams in the Mediterranean prior to the Battle of the Capes. Centered around the carriers HMAS Melbourne, HMCS Magnificent, and HMAS Vengeance, Force X caught an Italian cruiser flotilla attempting to quietly make a speed run from Taranto into the Adriatic. The battle saw 10 Regina Marina ships sunk or heavily damaged, with the only bright spot for the Italians being that the carrier Aquila did not sortie as planned due to problems with her propellers. Ironically, the Aquila would later join Force Drake in the Black Sea during Operation Crossroad.

A RCAF CF-86 Sabre and CF-105 Arrow return from an escort mission over Inner Germany, June 1959. The Arrow had initially been considered by some to be a boondoggle due to its tumultuous and expensive journey of design and procurement. However, those complaints were dashed away once Arrows began arriving in sufficient numbers (along with early versions of the venerable F-4 Phantom) beginning in early 1959 to counter the small but formidable numbers of Raubvogel interceptors plaguing Allied bomber crews. The Arrow and its export variants were popular in Commonwealth and other "friendly" air forces into the early '90s.

The bustling metropolis of Saigon, 2021. Modern-day Vietnam is a highly-developed country with an advanced prosperous economy, the 8th largest in the world as of 2021, as well as a strong, advanced military. Vietnamese culture has spread worldwide, with one often finding Vietnamese restaurants virtually everywhere they go, while Vietnamese music and media are extremely popular worldwide, often competing with Korean or even American media. It is a member of the United Nations and is considered an American ally. In recent years, Vietnam has drifted a bit closer to India as well, joining the Cooperative of Independent States, but still retains good relations with the US. Vietnam continues to maintain mandatory conscription to this day, as tensions with China continue to flare up, with the Sino-Vietnamese border one of the most militarized in the world.

An civilian Junkers Ju-500 of the Deutsche Luft Hansa on it's way to the Moscow Great Lake, just prior to the Hot War. Based on a earlier design over the designation EF-53, the EF-100 was initially designed as a long-range maritime recon aircraft. But as the ceasefire took effect in 1947, it was once again redesigned as a civilian airliner, intended to replace the old Ju-52/3m's and other aircrafts that the Deutsche Luft Hansa possessed (which were given to it's puppet states airlines). But when the Hot War started, initially, the flight were not cancelled as no Nazi thought that the Allies could reach deep inside Germany and it's territories. The loss of a aircraft near Minsk proven otherwise and all aircrafts were given to the Luftwaffe for long-range maritime reconnaissance (similar to the Fw-200). But this proven not to be a good combo, and almost 75% of the aircrafts were lost in just a year of combat, and all remaining were once again converted into transports, but even then it could not save them all, and they all end up destroyed, with only part of a cockpit surviving the war in a Italian museum (how it end up there is somewhat a mystery).


An What-If of the last project of the Horten Ho XVIII that the Horten Brothers tried to save before Goering and Hitler shelded the project permanentaly. Ironically, had the Nazis not invested so much in the Horten fighters and transatlantic bombers, and instead invested on other more promissing existing projects, the Allies could have a much more difficult war to fight.

MH-53 helicopters carrying 1st BN, 506th PIR prepare to embark from the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (LPH-1) off the Iranian coast during Operation Eagle Claw, June 1971. The rare deployment of Army troops from what was traditionally considered a USMC platform was the result of a period of heavy Marine casualties in Korea. The 11th and 26th MEUs were rotated out of their normal slot as part of Central Command's rapid deployment force in May to reinforce X Corps near Wonsan and were replaced by the 101st Airborne Division and the 173rd Airborne Brigade. Eagle Claw was also the first time that the Roosevelt had acted in its new helicopter assault role since it's 1962 refit. The USN had originally planned to convert one of the Essex Class carriers to the "landing platform, helicopter" concept after the successes of using several converted CVEs and the light carrier USS Bataan (CVL-29) during the Hot War, but decided to utilize one of the larger Midway class carriers instead. The larger size of the Roosevelt allowed for an full MEU (or an equivalent airmobile brigade) to be fully deployed and was key toward the development of the nearly 50,000 ton Iwo Jima class ships of the 60's and 70's and the modern 80,000 ton Puller class that can house and deploy nearly a full light division.
Bombing Essen April 1943 76 Squadron Halifax II W7805

Date: June 14th, 1959
Type: Avro Vulcan B.2
Reports state the Vulcan bombers equipped with specially designed ground penetrating “earthquake” ten ton bombs was virtually unopposed save by some local 88mm manually aimed anti aircraft guns. One weapon detonated near the storage facilities rupturing numerous pipes and creating a shock wave that caused containment failures on five 8,000 liter tanks, four of which were full and contained Sarin, with the fifth being nearly empty of the weapon. With over 74,000 casualties, including 18,000 fatalities affected by the deadliest nerve gas release in history. The area was not discovered until Canadian troops enter the area on June 19th.

Actress Marilyn Monroe performs for an appreciative crowd of Allied troops near Eindhoven. Monroe's famed February 1959 USO tour was seen by nearly 400,000 Allied troops and is often credited for boosting morale on the front lines after the horrors of Himmler's Victory offensive and the adoption of desperation efforts by the SS. Monroe's career, which had been flagging after a series of flops, was reinvigorated and she returned to her former status as one of the top actresses in Hollywood, culminating in her 1967 Oscar for Best Actress in "The Graduate".

Recruits for the Legión Española train near Laâyoune in Spanish Morocco, 1968. With the rapid independence of most of the French colonial empire in the immediate aftermath of the war, the Legionnaire regiments that made up most of the French Allied contingent lost their primary mission. Most returned home to rebuild after what was for some nearly two decades in exile from their homeland. A few served in the largely toothless French armed services that attempted to reconstitute itself in the post-war period. But a not insignificant number went on to serve in their (at the time), lesser known Spanish counterpart, which found itself in great demand as peacekeepers for the fledging UN as well as in a role analogous to a modern PMC in some of the smaller brushfire wars that scattered the international landscape from the 60's-80's. Most of these were low level conflicts that were not deemed worthy of the A4's attention. The Legion also became a destination for adventurers from around Europe seeking professional military training, especially from the regions of the former Reich and USSR where such training was not available either due to political instability or the provisions of the Barcelona Treaty. Tercios from the Legion still act as bodyguards/security forces for the Royal Family of Brunei, the House of Saud and the Tsarist Republic to this day.

The USS George Washington (CV-59) after being struck by a kamikaze attack conducted by a Kriegsmarine FW-190 torpedo bomber near the Kiel Canal, August 1959. One of the few blemishes for the USN in the latter stages of the war, the FW-190 attack was made possible by the CBG's combat air patrol being drawn off by a diversionary attack made by a large number of unarmed Deutsche Luft civilian craft embarking from Luftwaffe bases in Denmark. While the Washington suffered significant damage to its flight deck, with over a dozen aircraft written off as a total loss and 78 sailors and pilots killed, the ship did not sink after the heroic damage control efforts of its crew preventing the fires from reaching the fuel and ammunition storage decks.

USS Maine (BB-69), foreground, and USS Illinois (BB-65) prepare to bombard the Atlantic Wall during False Peak 1. The heaviest Allied guns (the Maine, her sister Montana (BB-67), the Illinois and the venerable battlewagon HMS Rodney) were tasked with reducing the German shore battery “Lindemann”. The Lindemann battery mounted the largest caliber guns on the Atlantic Wall (46cm, same as the H-Class battleships) and had only suffered minor damage from repeated air strikes. The Allied ships fired nearly 1000 16 and 18 inch shells at the German battery, eventually knocking out 2 of the 3 heavy guns. The German guns did manage to severely damage the Rodney, which had nearly run aground engaging the German positions at near point blank range while drawing fire away from the more modern American ships. The old battleship was laid up for the rest of the war, but it’s crew was later awarded a Presidential Unit Citation by President Kennedy after a direct endorsement by CNO Admiral Clark.

A M-52 machine gun team from the 107th Infantry Division fire on German positions during the clearing of the Scheldt Estuary near Antwerp, November 1958. The 107th, formed out of several National Guard units from New York State, became famous after Stars and Stripes began reprinting the division’s newsletter. The newsletter, penned by an enterprising Public Affairs officer 1st LT S. Lieber, captivated readers with the exploits of the 107th (affectionally dubbed the “Howling Commandos” by Lieber) from its landing in France through the end of the war.

Vyacheslav Molotov walks the grounds of the Canadian embassy in Switzerland, May 1966. After the collapse of the his government in the March 1959 sarin gas bombings of Krasnoyarsk, the Swiss government gave Molotov and other Soviet diplomatic officials sanctuary within the Swiss foreign ministry. The Soviet officials later moved back to their own embassy for the duration of the war and for a time in the immediate aftermath of the war, quietly maintained by the Swiss government. Molotov and his family were then expelled from the embassy at the order of Tsar Andrei I when the Tsarist government took control of most of the former Soviet diplomatic infrastructure postwar. The Canadian government then offered “temporary” sanctuary to Molotov, which lasted until his death in 1986. Molotov never saw Russia again.
