Germanica Über Alles

Germanica: the last stronghold of Nazi propaganda master Josef Goebbels. Goebbels knows that if he can hold out a bit longer, the Allies will back away from unconditional surrender for Germany, and he and his zealots can prepare for the moment when their hateful Nazi ideology is ready once again to rise from its alpine grave and strike at the heart of humanity. But as determined as Goebbels is, there are Americans and a few stalwart Europeans just as determined to put a final stake in the Nazi heart.
