Hossbach Niederschrift

The Hossbach Niederschrift was a document drawn up in 1937 which effectively controlled Nazi thinking. It argued in favour of the need for Germany to begin a programme of expansion within five years, before German weapons grew obsolete an the army recruits grew too old. (PROSEWarlords of Utopia)

To this end, Germany annexed Austria (TV: Silver Nemesis) and Czechoslovakia in 1938, (PROSE: Illegal Alien) invaded Poland in 1939, steamrolled Western Europe in 1940, (PROSE: Timewyrm: Exodus) and invaded the Soviet Union in 1941. (PROSE: Just War, Losing the Audience) The Third Reich reached its peak in 1942, after which events in the Second World War began to turn against the Germans. (PROSE: The Shadow in the Glass)

Across the Known Worlds of Germania, alternate universes in which the Nazis won the war, the Hossback Niederschrift was a constant feature across every different world. (PROSE: Warlords of Utopia)
