I became Stalin chapter 18
Hitler leaned back against the back of his chair and began to think.
If it dominates the Mediterranean, Turkey, who is almost isolated in the Mediterranean, can participate in the war. They will now be able to stab the Caucasus, the soft belly of the Soviet Union.
It also opens the way from the Atlantic to the Black Sea, allowing German fleets to attack Odessa, the headquarters of Army Group South, and Sevastopol, the home port of the Black Sea Fleet.
Securing oil wells in Libya safely, bringing Suez into the hands of the Axis powers, and entering India into the war. Occupying the Mediterranean Sea on the chessboard fighting over the world was essential to dominate not only Europe but also Asia and Africa.
If Britain is decisively collapsed in one decisive battle, control of the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean will come in, and Mannerheim’s Finland, feared by the Soviet threat, could also be brought to war.
Sweden, which advocates neutrality and pretends to cooperate cunningly, may also be able to participate in the war. If Scandinavian countries participate in the war, they will be able to take a look at Leningrad, which Army Group Northern has not yet reached.
Rommel’s tank corps will conquer Africa, conquer England, and now even take Leningrad! How will ‘Stalin’ react if the places that he thought were the rear were trampled down from Finland?
He felt better. An unbearable smile spread across his lips.
Soon Rasputica is coming, and winter is coming.
Rasputitsa thinks that it is time for the German advance to stop and the Soviet Union can reorganize, but in fact, the Soviet Union can’t do much damage to Germany either. In other words, no matter what kind of chaos Germany was making on the other side of the front line, there would be no cards that the Soviet Union could use on the front line.
With some wintering gear, which began production too late, it was not possible to cover all of the millions of German troops. If it was inevitable to suffer massive damage in front of the Soviet winter offensive, in the meantime, we had to prepare a few measures that could shake the Soviet Union.
On the scale of tactics, the Soviet Union was overwhelmingly superior. In Operation Barbarossa, the future man over there, who may not necessarily be Stalin, but who is presumed to be Stalin, suffered a strategic surprise.
However, in terms of operational techniques, it was quickly reorganized and succeeded in stopping the German forces. It was not good to drive the army in front of the defensive line he had built.
The best thing is to win without fighting.
Why do we push our soldiers into the enemy’s strongest defenses? To add a handful of manure to their land? Caucasus and Leningrad, one of the most important places in the war effort of the Soviet Union.
But if you have to bury millions of troops in the ground to beat it, it doesn’t make any sense at all. In real history, Hitler fell by doing so, and he had no intention of repeating his mistakes.
“History… must not be repeated”
His homeland, the homeland of his soul, Japan, had to kneel in front of two American nuclear bombs.
It made numerous strategic-tactical mistakes and failed to develop the nuclear bomb early enough. The world’s best battleship Yamato, which boasts of being the best in the world, was sunk by a cowardly demonic aircraft without using it properly.
But now the chance has been given. A chance to fend off the bad luck of the motherland.
Conquer Britain, subdue the Soviet Union, and support Japan in a battle against the United States to seize the hegemony of this divided world…!
Was Oda Nobunaga, who unifies the Warring States period, feeling like this?
He really liked Oda Nobunaga. Just as he longed for and longed for the glory of the Great Japanese Empire. A powerful leader who will end the chaotic era…! Following Oda was also an extension of that. And it seemed to work pretty well.
He was originally a fanatical admirer of Hitler, but his cold and sober “change” was more feared by his subordinates.
Weak people like Halder couldn’t even properly develop their spirits in front of him. The more daring – like Canaris – were determined, but they couldn’t hide their trembling moment by moment. Fear became awe, and awe became respect.
The current president was a respected leader.
“Admiral Wilhelm Canaris has arrived, Sir Führer.”
“Let’s hear it.”
Canaris wasn’t as timid as Halder. He was always confident and never crouched in front of Hitler. The Führer favored the loyal Canaris.
In actual history, he plotted a treason, but it was only to stop Hitler from running rampant like a madman. How beautiful are those who are loyal to the country and people, not to people? It’s not that each of us is drunk with our own interests and powers.
None of the Nazi dignitaries were equal. They are usually small gangs who flirt to win the favor of the President, or tremble with authority. Or both.
Sometimes there were ignorant people like Göring who openly insisted on their share, but that was just a drug addiction. Very few had the guts and convictions like Canaris.
“I have come under an order. Your Excellency.”
He had theft. Even as a soldier who climbed to the top of the admiral, he put on each salute and pretended to be seated. The Führer looked at him with satisfaction.
“Is the disinformation operation going smoothly?”
“Yes sir. We have proceeded as ordered. MI-6 is convinced that the body spilled on our side is genuine. A U-boat on patrol informed us that the homeland fleet that was turned to destroy Bismarck is being brought back to the homeland defense.”
“How many fleets can we have in Cadiz until next week?”
Canaris took a bundle of reports from her arms and placed them on the table. The report from Krixmarine detailed the maneuvers and deception tactics of the fleet.
Bismarck and his escort fleet – both surface and underwater – maneuver towards Scapa Flo in northern Britain, manning the British home fleet. In the meantime, most of the rest of the Axis surface fleet converges in Gibraltar.
Having secretly expressed his intention to join the Axis powers, Franco agreed to hide the Axis fleet in Cadiz, a Spanish port near Gibraltar. So, if you can, run straight to Gibraltar and destroy the British naval base.
Afbehr planned and implemented two deceptive tactics at this point.
First, the British Navy threw a Bismarck as bait, aiming to sink it by grinding its teeth. The code that was already leaking to them was telling them where Bismarck was heading and how many escort ships he had attached.
Of course, there were many more U-boats attached to the escort.
And other routes leaked information about the British landing. Identified spies from M16, the British foreign intelligence service, were informed by also identified sources that Germany had begun stockpiling supplies for a large-scale amphibious operation.
Some pontoon bridges, some amphibious orbits, and some parachutes for paratroopers. These fragments of information flowed into the M16, leading to the conclusion that Germany was preparing an amphibious operation with at least hundreds of thousands of men somewhere.
At the same time, Afbear prepared one body. The body, dubbed ‘Ignaz Dolman’, a U-boat officer from Bavaria, with a German ‘secret’ plan of operation, was adrift on the British coast.
The secret plan of operation described a major airlift against Portsmouth, Dover, and Bexhill, the major cities of the island, and an amphibious operation by two field forces, mobilizing almost all of Creeksmarine’s surface ships, except for Bismarck.
The ‘German Panzer Divisions’, which would depart from Calais, Le Havre, and Cherbourg in northern France, land on the southern coast of England, besieged London, and march through Oxford to Norwick, were already on standby with the best training.
Having obtained the body and the plan, the British staff hurriedly summoned home guards who were reserve soldiers and began training them on how to use heavy weapons and anti-aircraft guns.
At the same time, the Tochikawa trenches began to fill the shores that were identified as landing sites. The British defense plan was excellent. However, except that this plan was also part of the deception tactic.
Germany threw Bismarck as a bait and bragged about landing on the southern coast to attract the attention of the British home fleet, but was actually targeting Gibraltar and Malta.
Even if you were suspicious of throwing Bismarck as a bait, the massive amphibious amphibious operation stunned everyone in the British staff and turned their attention elsewhere.
While all this information went through the old Enigma leaking through the UK, the true direction of the attack, Operation Gibraltar, was being conducted in top secret through the latest 8-stage Enigma – codenamed Triton – that they had never even heard of.
“Make sure to stockpile enough amphibious materials and manage them well. After all, an amphibious operation will be necessary to conquer Britain.”
“Yes, Mr. Führer! I will pay attention to that point.”
After the collapse of the British army in the Mediterranean, a real amphibious operation was waiting. Even if the encryption system was broken again and information about the amphibious operation leaked out, there was no way the British reaction to being deceived once would be as thorough as it is now hysterical.
Also, a Japanese uprising that will shake the British Indian Empire awaits the British who have lost the Mediterranean.
Chandra Bose, an Indian independence activist and anti-military advocate, has already made a journey to India. Passing through the Balkans, through “neutral” Turkey and Iran, and then to India, he will begin an armed struggle to free India from the toothless tiger Britain—and to join the Axis powers.
He led the Provisional Government of Free India, accompanied by dozens of German military advisors. Since Germany has not yet been able to supply them with supplies, at best it will be all about training an army with militia-level armament.
However, Japan is advancing from the east and Germany is advancing from the west. Among them, only the British remain, who have been stuck in the gap between the internal rebellion and the external enemy.
In the end, even India joined the Axis powers to achieve a huge co-prosperity in Eurasia. That was his goal.
The two axes of Eurasia’s co-prosperity sphere and who will lead mankind… The Empire of Japan and the Empire of Germany. With the abbreviation of Pervitin, which began to spin slowly, the Führer began to laugh.
“Am I not… a better strategist than Oda?”
“Yes? Your Excellency?”
His secretary asked, but the Führer simply waved his hand. The secretary just said so and left him with a smirk.
The number of drugs prescribed by Dr. Morel, the attending physician, was increasing. And the amount of time I spend with Pervitin is starting to get longer and longer. He said incomprehensible words and wrote bizarre graffiti-like handwriting on a piece of paper, making himself angry, crying, and laughing.
The secretary could not understand such a journey of the Führer, but Dr. Goebbels and Chief Secretary Bohrmann said that the Führer was the leader and ‘prophet’ of the Deutsche nation. Do not try to understand every detail of his journey. Be silent about what you see and hear.
The Führer let out a mad laugh.
The secretary saluted and left.
