The German 19th Army was a Wehrmacht field army commanded by General Strauss during the Second World War. It was originally selected to spearhead the invasion of the Great Britain in 1940 after the success of the Nazi Blitzkrieg in Western Europe left Germany the master of the continent. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Exodus) However, the demands of the war eventually led the invasion to be cancelled at the end of 1941. (PROSE: Just War)

Alternate timeline Edit

In an alternate timeline in which Adolf Hitler never lost the power of the Timewyrm, he never issued his pivotal halt order during the Battle of Dunkirk. The British Expeditionary Force never escaped was subsequently annihilated. After Dunkirk, great storms summoned by the Hitler through the Timewyrm decimated the Royal Navy in the English Channel, allowing the 19th Army to land in southern England and establish a beachhead between Folkestone and Worthing. With minimal resistance from the remaining British Army, the Germans marched towards London and the United Kingdom surrendered after six days.

Joseph Goebbels acknowledged the 19th Army's part in the Reich's victory in The Thousand Year Reich - The Glorious Beginning, published in 1947. (PROSE: Timewyrm: Exodus)

Behind the scenes Edit
