Attention: This mod has been updated since it's original release. To allow it to run post-steampipe update, it now runs as a Source 2013 mod. Please ensure you have the Source SDK Base 2013 Singleplayer installed and have opted into any applicable bug-fixing betas.
This mod was made as an entry for Competition 29: Map Something Historical - though I may have stretched "Historical" a little bit.
Alternate History Background:
The Second World War ended with the German bombing of London, Manhattan, and Washington DC with atomic bombs, and the subsequent surrender of Russia, the United States, and Great Britain and its colonies to the Nazi Regime. Though the war officially ended in 1942, fighting did not end entirely until Hitler's death in 1986, causing the Nazi empire to crumble. Among the most prominent heads of the resistance was Mikhail Kalashnikov, who, disillusioned by Russia's surrender, took his designs for a better weapon and disappeared into the rubble of Moscow, forgotten by all until 1947, when his designs came to fruition, held in the hands of rebels worldwide. In the years following, many died trying to wrestle the world free of the Nazis through what was widely regarded at the time as "Terrorist attacks".
One such incident happened in October 18, 1978, when a man known only by the alias "John Smith", armed with only a crowbar, a Colt 1911, and a now lost variant of the AK-47, bombed an embassy in Munich, entering and exiting the building through a maintenance tunnel network and making a bloody escape through the industrial centre that ended the lives of many of the city's most brutal Gestapo officers and troops, as well as a committee of high-ranking Nazi officials that died in the blast. Such loss in the centre of an urban area was not able to be censored, and the attack struck a major blow to morale for Nazi supporters worldwide. It is disputed among historians how Smith escaped. Some records mention a monk and a boat, while others mention a young woman and a car, and others still detail a passage out of the city by train.
Following Hitler's death (Whether or not it was suicide or an assassination is still unclear) the Nazi regime fell, it's officials hunted down, and a large memorial was erected in Berlin to commemorate the men and women who died as a direct result of, and in objection of, the Genocides perpetrated by the Nazis, as well as the contributions of the resistance to the weakening of the empire.
