Marco Polo Bridge Incident


Japanese and Chinese forces have skirmished inconclusively over the strategic Marco Polo Bridge located just southwest of Beijing.

[CHI.GetNameDef] has rejected [JAP.GetNameDef]'s demands for an apology and territorial concessions, claiming instead that the 'breaking point' of Japanese aggression has been reached.

Diplomats fear that the volatile situation could result in war at any time.

Marco Polo Bridge Incident


Japanese and Chinese forces have skirmished inconclusively over the strategic Marco Polo Bridge located just southwest of Beijing.

[CHI.GetNameDef] has accepted full responsibility for the incident, forwarding an apology to [JAP.GetNameDef] as well as agreeing to extensive territorial concessions. This has surprised many experts, who had predicted that the border tensions would erupt into a full-blown war.

Does this mean lasting peace in Asia?

[JAP.GetNameDef] Demands French Indochina


Taking advantage of French weakness in light of the struggle in Europe, [JAP.GetNameDef] has coerced the new government into surrendering control over their colony in Indochina!

Japanese troops have already moved to occupy all major bases in the region, and experts fear that the colony could be used as a launching point for future military expeditions.

[JAP.GetNameDef] Demands French Indochina


Attempting to take advantage of France's weakness in light of their defeat in Europe, [JAP.GetNameDef] recently issued a demand to the new French government for complete access to their bases in Indochina.

This would effectively mean transferring over control of the entire colony to Japan, something the French could not agree to.

Experts consider it likely that this decision will lead to Japanese military reprisals.

Soviet - Japanese Skirmish


Soviet and Japanese forces recently clashed in a major skirmish along the Manchurian border.

A significant Soviet raiding force supported by Mongolian cavalry apparently caught the Japanese by surprise, inflicting heavy casualties.

The mood in Tokyo has been reported as tense, but it is too early to tell if the conflict will escalate into open warfare.

Soviet - Japanese Skirmish

Soviet Withdrawal


After a build-up of Japanese forces in Manchuria, the Soviet Union appears to have unexpectedly withdrawn units that were stationed right alongside the border.

This may be a bid by Moscow to avoid a future confrontation with Japan, possibly triggered by the stinging memory of the defeat Russia endured in the Russo - Japanese War.

Soviet Union Claims Bessarabia


After massing forces along the Romanian border, [SOV.GetNameDef] has issued an ultimatum to the government in Bucharest for the immediate transfer of Bessarabia, to their control. The region once belonged to the Russian Empire, which [SOV.GetNameDef] sees as sufficient legal basis for their demands.

Romania has declared that it has no choice but to accede, and its forces have been withdrawn from Bessarabia.

Romania Rejects Soviet Demands


[SOV.GetNameDef] has been concentrating significant forces along its border to [ROM.GetNameDef], and today Moscow issued an ultimatum to the Romanian government, calling for the immediate transfer of Bessarabia to its control. The region once belonged to the Russian Empire, which [SOV.GetNameDef] sees as sufficient legal basis for their demands.

In a defiant move, Bucharest has chosen to reject all Soviet territorial demands, and the Romanian army has been given the order for a complete mobilization.

International observers expect Soviet forces to cross the border at any moment.

[FIN.GetNameDef] Rejects Soviet Demands


Soviet diplomats have presented an ultimatum to the government of [FIN.GetNameDef], demanding border adjustments in the region of Karelia.

Despite a significant build-up of Soviet forces on the border, Helsinki has rejected these demands, stating that "not a single foot of Finnish soil will be given willingly to the Russian aggressors."

International observers fear that a Soviet invasion may be imminent.

[FIN.GetNameDef] Accepts Soviet Demands


After much debate, the government of [FIN.GetNameDef] has decided to accept Soviet demands for border adjustments in the region of Karelia.

[SOV.GetNameDef] has cited the need to create a buffer zone to improve the security of Leningrad, located only 30 kilometers from the now former Finnish border.

Many observers had feared that a full-scale Soviet invasion of Finland was imminent, but this diplomatic solution should lay those fears to rest.

Romania Rejects German Arbitration


Negotiations between [HUN.GetNameDef] and [ROM.GetNameDef] regarding a territorial dispute have broken down at Vienna.

[GER.GetNameDef] acted as arbiter, but when they decided to return Northern Transylvania to [HUN.GetNameDef], [ROM.GetNameDef] rejected the decision. The Romanian government promptly ordered their delegation to return to Bucharest.

It would appear that [GER.GetNameDef] does not yet wield the diplomatic influence they imagined they did.

[GER.GetNameDef] Claims Memel


With German forces on their border poised to attack, [LIT.GetNameDef] has given in to a [GER.GetAdjective] ultimatum demanding the surrender of the old Prussian territory of Memel.

It was passed to [LIT.GetNameDef] by the Treaty of Versailles, but has now been reintegrated into the region of Ostpreussen.

Have we yet reached the extent of German territorial ambitions in Europe? Experts are doubtful...

[LIT.GetNameDef] Rejects German Demands


Even with German forces lined up on their border, [LIT.GetNameDef] has rejected an ultimatum issued by Berlin for the return of territory of Memel.

Memel once belonged to East Prussia, but was annexed by [LIT.GetNameDef] following the Treaty of Versailles. It was the integrity of the Treaty [LIT.GetLeader] said it was necessary to protect when the [LIT.GetAdjective] government announced their rejection.

International observers now expect that Germany may attempt to take the territory by force...

More concessions have been forced on [ROM.GetNameDef], with [BUL.GetNameDef] reclaiming Southern Dobrudja.

The territory was annexed by Romania in 1913, after the Second Balkan War, and is still mostly populated by ethnic Bulgarians and Turks.

The Polish Question


In a heated speech today before the Reichstag, Adolf Hitler denounced Poland and their treatment of Germans living in Danzig and the Polish Corridor.

Claiming that German minorities in Poland are being 'persecuted in the vilest manner imaginable,' Hitler made the position of his government clear:

'Danzig was a German city and is a German city! The Corridor was German and is German! Without the German Volk, these eastern regions would still be plunged in the depths of barbarism.'

The Remilitarization of the Rhineland


Germany has stationed troops in the Rhineland territory, close to the French border, in clear violation of the Treaty of Versailles. The local population cheered the German soldiers on, while the diplomatic reactions from France and Britain have so far been muted.

'It is no more than the Germans walking into their own backyard,' a political commentator in Britain observed.

A group of Wehrmacht officers opposed to the war have launched a coup in Berlin. An unidentified party of armed men stormed the Reichskanzlei and, following a shootout with his bodyguards, successfully took the life of the German Führer.

The surviving conspirators have all been arrested by the Gestapo, and this morning Heinrich Himmler was sworn in as the new Führer of the German Reich.

In a speech before the Reichstag, Himmler accused Britain and France of masterminding Hitler's assassination and stated Germany's unequivocal commitment to the utter destruction of both nations.

In a speech before the Reichstag, Hitler vowed revenge against France and Britain for masterminding this 'underhanded attempt' on his life.

Civil War in Germany!


A group of Wehrmacht officers opposed to the current war have launched a coup against Hitler in Berlin. An unidentified party of armed men stormed the Reichskanzlei and successfully liquidated the German Führer after an intense gun battle with his SS bodyguards.

The conspirators have managed to take control over most of Berlin, and many Wehrmacht units have gone over to their side. Forces still loyal to the Nazis have rallied under new leadership, and vowed to purge Germany of the 'communist dissidents and foreign agents currently occupying Berlin.'

The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact


Diplomats from Germany and the Soviet Union concluded what observers are describing as a historic agreement today with the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.

Named after German foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop and his Soviet counterpart, Vyacheslav Molotov, this non-aggression pact stipulates that neither side will ally itself to nor aid an enemy of the other.

Foreign diplomats warn that this treaty effectively gives Germany a free hand to wage war in Europe without having to fear Soviet intervention.

The Second Armistice at Compiégne


An armistice between the German Reich and the French Third Republic has been signed at Compiégne, in the very railway carriage in which the German surrender in World War I was negotiated.

Under the terms of the armistice, a French government under Marshal Pétain based out of Vichy will continue to administer most of southern France, while the rest of the country falls under a German Occupation Zone.

Some French officers have vowed to continue resistance from abroad, but this puts an effective end to the fighting in France, at least for the time being.

The Birth of the Franco-British Union


Facing defeat in France, the French and British governments have decided to join their two nations as one until victory over Germany has been assured.

A new joint government is being formed in London, with Edward VIII remaining as the head of state. In an issued 'Declaration of Union,' the new Joint War Cabinet stated:

'France and Great Britain shall no longer be two nations, but one Franco-British Union. The constitution of the Union will provide for joint organs of defense, foreign, financial and economic policies. Every citizen of France or Britain will enjoy immediate citizenship of the other state.'

The Anschluss of Austria


After a successful coup d'état by the local Nazi party in Vienna, German troops have crossed the Austrian border and taken control of the country.

No fighting has been reported, and the German soldiers were greeted by cheering crowds in the cities.

In a speech before a massive crowd at the Heldenplatz in Vienna, Hitler announced the Anschluss of Austria, annexing the country into Germany:

'The oldest eastern province of the German people shall be, from this point on, the newest bastion of the German Reich!'

The Assassination of Leon Trotsky


Leon Trotsky, once the top lieutenant and heir presumptive of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, died today in a Mexico City hospital. He was attacked in his home with an ice axe by a Spanish national believed to have been in the employ of the NKVD.

After a failed power struggle with Joseph Stalin and his allies for control of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Trotsky spent the thirties in exile, living in Turkey, France and Norway before finally settling in Mexico.

He remained a constant critic of Stalin and the 'degenerated 'workers' state' of the Soviet Union

Trotsky Survives Assassination Attempt


After a violent struggle in his Mexico City home earlier today, Leon Trotsky killed a would-be assassin with the ice axe the man tried to attack him with. The killer has been identified as a Spanish national believed to have been in the employ of the NKVD.

Trotsky was once the top lieutenant and heir presumptive of Vladimir Lenin, but after a failed power struggle he was forced into exile from the Soviet Union by Joseph Stalin.

Speaking to the press, Trotsky denounced the attempt on his life as 'yet another cowardly plot hatched by Stalin to silence his critics.'

Trotsky Killed on Soviet Border


Soviet authorities have released photos of the dead body of Leon Trotsky, confirming rumors that he was killed recently while trying to sneak into [SOV.GetNameDef].

His body was found washed up on the shores of the Atrek River which runs along the Soviet - Persian border.

It is believed that Trotsky sought to capitalize on the current turmoil within the USSR by seeking allies against his long-time rival Stalin and replacing him in a coup d'état.

Trotsky Launches Coup!


A violent power struggle has occurred in the provisional Soviet capital. Leon Trotsky appears to have stealthily entered the remnants of the USSR, putting an end to the long exile that was forced upon him.

Together with allies in the highest echelons of the Communist Party, he launched a successful coup again Stalin.

After a brief trial by a People's Court, Stalin was sentenced to death by hanging. The sentence was carried out this morning.

Trotsky Meets His End


Leon Trotsky was found dead this morning in a Buenos Aires hotel room.

He appears to have been strangled to death by a mountaineering sling, and the killer was apprehended by Trotsky's bodyguards before he could leave the building.

Although the murderer is a Portuguese national, there is evidence linking him to the Soviet intelligence directorate GRU. It would appear that Stalin has finally dealt a mortal blow to his old rival.

The Hindenburg Disaster


The German passenger airship Hindenburg was destroyed today while attempting to dock at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station in the United States. For reasons not yet determined, the airship was engulfed in flames and crashed to the ground, claiming 35 lives.

Due to the scarcity and expense of helium and the US ban on exporting it, the Hindenburg, like all German passenger airships, was ultimately engineered to use hydrogen, which provides greater lift but is also flammable.

With public faith shaken by this disaster and the rise of much faster passenger aircraft, this could spell the end of the era of airships.

Hindenburg Incident


Disaster was narrowly averted today, when a diesel fuel leak was discovered on the German passenger airship Hindenburg as it came in to dock at the Lakehurst Naval Air Station in the United States.

The leak was promptly repaired. Had it gone unnoticed, flammable vapor could have resulted in a fire that would have engulfed the entire airship.

Critics have long questioned the wisdom of passenger airships given their spotty safety records, and this incident is bound to make them even more vocal.

The Flight of Rudolf Hess


Deputy Führer Rudolf Hess was arrested by Home Guard soldiers in Scotland yesterday after parachuting from a heavy fighter.

An accomplished pilot, he apparently flew alone across the North Sea, taking care stay out of radar range before veering west towards Britain.

Hess appears to have taken it upon himself to negotiate a peace treaty between Britain and Germany, although Berlin has denounced him as a madman and stripped him of any political office.

British authorities have not been available for comment.

The Death of Rudolf Hess


Deputy Führer Rudolf Hess was killed yesterday when the Royal Air Force intercepted the heavy fighter he was flying off the coast of Scotland.

The exact nature of his mission remains unclear - although Hess was an accomplished pilot, he flew alone and his airplane does not appear to have been armed.

His remains were recovered by British authorities, but a state funeral with an empty coffin has been scheduled in Berlin.

Hitler was reported as being visibly distraught by the death of his old friend.

The Flight of Rudolf Hess


The airship Hindenburg met with a dramatic end today when it exploded over Scotland.

It appears to have been commandeered by Deputy Führer Rudolf Hess, who managed to fly it alone across the North Sea on a personal mission to negotiate peace with Britain.

British radar stations had no trouble detecting the massive aircraft, and several Royal Air Force wings were immediately directed towards its position. When the Hindenburg failed to respond over the radio, they opened fire.

Hess parachuted to safety, and has now been imprisoned in the Tower of London.

Amelia Earhart Disappears


The famous aviator Amelia Earhart, the first woman to complete a solo flight across the Atlantic, has disappeared along with her navigator, Fred Noonan, near Howland Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

The two were attempting a flight around the entire world in their twin-engined Lockheed Electra plane when they vanished.

A search for the missing aviators is now being conducted by the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard, but there is little hope of finding them.

Anglo-Polish Alliance


In light of Germany's recent aggressive behavior, the United Kingdom and France have felt compelled to sign a military alliance with Poland. The British Prime Minister made the following statement in the House of Commons:

'In the event of any action which clearly threatened Polish independence, and which the Polish Government accordingly considered it vital to resist with their national forces, His Majesty's Government would feel themselves bound at once to lend the Polish Government all support in their power. They have given the Polish Government an assurance to this effect.'

The Munich Agreement


German demands for the Sudeten territory in Czechoslovakia, which is home to a considerable German minority, have intensified.

At a summit held in Munich, Germany, Britain, France and Italy sought to find a diplomatic solution to the so-called 'Sudeten Crisis.' Czechoslovakia was not invited to attend. An agreement was reached in which Germany annexes the Sudetenland, but will not pursue any further territorial gains in Europe.

Mr. Chamberlain spoke to crowds in London:

'For the second time a Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it is peace for our time.'

The Spanish Civil War


A civil war has erupted in Spain! Several generals seeking to overthrow the current government in Madrid have issued a pronunciamento, and a large portion of the Spanish Armed Forces have answered their call to arms.

This right-wing Nationalist faction has occupied much of Spain, including the overseas territories.

Loyalist forces and volunteers have assembled under the left-wing Republican government, determined to resist the putsch to their last breath.

The battle for Spain has begun.

The Games of the XI Olympiad


The eleventh Olympic Games were recently held in Berlin, Germany.

Attended by athletes from 49 different nations across the world, the 1936 Summer Olympics are the first in history to have enjoyed limited live television coverage. The games were a significant propaganda victory for the German regime, which spent lavishly on the event.

German athletes saw the most success, winning 33 gold medals, while the Americans came in second, with 24. Four of these were won by Jesse Owens, the single most successful athlete of the Games.

Tokyo is the first non-Western city to host the Olympics, and a special purpose-built Me 261 long-range aircraft carried the Olympic Flame there from Germany without refueling.

Japanese athletes did well, and their 14 gold medals earned them a third place in the medal count, after Germany and the United States.

The Games of the XII Olympiad


The twelfth Olympic Games were recently held in Helsinki, Finland.

The Games were originally scheduled to be hosted in Tokyo, but Japan's ongoing war effort made this impossible and the International Olympic Committee awarded them to Helsinki instead.

Athletes from the United States won the most medals, followed by Germany and then Italy. Finland came in fourth with their 10 gold medals.

Soviet Expansion in Europe


Since the rise to power of the [From.GetRulingParty], [From.GetNameDef] has been working towards closer relations with [SOV.GetNameDef], and has now joined the Union itself.

As of a few days ago the [From.GetAdjective] government officially submitted control of the country to [SOV.GetNameDef] as an integrated oblast.

Soviet officials refuse to acknowledge descriptions of the recent assimilation of [From.GetNameDef] as aggressive, claiming that the "integration of territory" happened without any outside pressure.

Soviet Influence in Europe


Since the rise to power of the [baltic_annexation.GetRulingParty], [baltic_annexation.GetNameDef] has been working towards closer relations with [SOV.GetNameDef].

Although [baltic_annexation.GetLeader] remains in office, ministers are chosen for their allegiance to [SOV.GetNameDef], and a large part of the nation's sovereignty has been surrendered. Soviet officials state that [baltic_annexation.GetName] is merely seeking protection as a response to Europe becoming increasingly unsafe for smaller nations.

[SOV.GetNameDef] also reiterated that they were willing to extend such "protection" to any state that felt threatened by neighboring countries.

The Fall of Warsaw


German forces advancing in [POL.GetNameDef] have succeeded in capturing Warsaw.

Sporadic fighting continues in Praga and a few other districts, but organized resistance in the city seems to have ceased.

The Polish government reportedly evacuated the city as the first German units entered Warsaw's suburbs, and their present location is unknown.

Fighting against the German invaders continues in other parts of the country, but the loss of the capital is a serious blow to the Polish war effort.
