Nazi Files Uncovered: Veterans Established an Illegal Army

German Soldiers in Russia
German Soldiers in Russia

It has been uncovered that manuscripts and documents had been created by Nazi Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS former members, describing and finalizing a secretive army which was put in place in order to protect Germany from the Soviet Russians.
During the beginning of a basic world peace, after the destruction of WW2, it seems that a tremendously large amount of former Nazis were not at all comfortable with the situation at hand involving Russian governmental instability.

The document that was found, having been hidden for almost 6 decades at that, held a massive 321 pages-worth of data. Involving the description of a conglomerate in which existed to that of 2000 former Nazi officers, these men were now hardened veterans of the war. And obviously still retained a certain fear when it came to the prospect of being overpowered by their much bigger neighbouring cousin. This gathering of post-war soldiers was created during 1949, and they got straight to work making preparations in case of a large-scale attack. They did this however, without a mandate from the German government, nor any consent from that of the parliament which was currently in rule at the time.  In order to build their hidden forces, they called upon the power and secrecy of previously allied occupational groups and Nazi supporters. Who would not draw attention to their ongoing activities and or plans.

The desired objective for the war-conscientious retirees, was to defend their native country against Eastern aggression or problematic issues that might surface in the future. They specifically had their eye on West Germany, for it was the most probable area to be invaded first and come under attack; if that of course were to arise as these veterans seemed to believe. It was obvious that these men and perhaps women would be terrified of Russia’s tumultuous albeit large army, for the Cold War was just at its early stages. And such fighting as well as political discomfort could billow over the borders within an instant. The secret battalion, was very vigilant when it came to being at the ready whenever they were needed. They’d defend Western Germany with their lives, as well as being at the domestic forefront if the need be strong enough. In the document, it was elaborated upon that men would be ready for deployment as soon as the USSR Communists began to start a civil war.

The stack of papers itself, also held information about left-wing politicians. In this section, it described those who were in the Social Democrat, a.k.a. SPD.
A very important and monumental figure, who was the one to reform the political party after the clear destruction and disorganisation that ensued after World War II. Was Fritz Erier. He managed to spy on certain students such as the likes of Joachim Peckert, who later was to become one of the few senior officials at the Western Embassy in Moscow. This promotional effort occurred during the 1970s however.

The uncovering of this very intuitive document to that of war paraphernalia, happened by sheer luck. A historian who goes by the name of ‘Agilolf Kesselring’ stumbled upon the text, which belonged to a firm under the title of The Gehlen Organization, this institution was the result of the previous Foreign Intelligence Agency that used to be hard at work in Germany. He found the documents, which peculiarly were named under the false title of ‘Insurances’, whilst performing his job for the Independent Historical Commission. He had been hired by the BND to pry and look through its early history, and when doing so. Searching for the official number of workers employed to the aforementioned BND.  He found the records, and such an achievement can now be guessed to be one of the most crucial discoveries the Independent Historical Commission has ever had, the Spiegel Online International reports.

The veteran’s queries, data, and informational pieces as well as debates were shambled and incomplete, due to the lack of a full script. However it was and is still possible to make out their intentions as well as plans, and in quick analysis it’s easy to deduce that all of their troubles centred on the constant fear of a Russian invasion as well as that of the Russian’s European allies, especially those who were situated in the East. The violation of laws was of no consequence to them, because having such a young and inexperienced instatement of a democratic party allowed for loop-holes as well as blind eyes to give them access and space.
