The British Civil War, sometimes called the Second British Civil War, is an armed conflict fought between the Collaborationist British government and the forces of the Free Britain movement. The conflict can be considered a spillover of the German Civil War due to the instability that it brought on Britain and the fact that Germany could not intervene in the conflict has emboldened the leaders of Free Britain to act. In truth however, the conflict is sparked by the unfinished business left over from the Uprising of 1956.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Uprising of 1956[edit | edit source]

Ever since Britain's defeat after Operation Sea Lion in 1945, there had been a growing resistance to German and their collaborators. By 1956 the various anti-German groups had unified under the banner of Her Majesty's Most Loyal Resistance (HMMLR). The organization was lead by the dual leadership of Spanish Civil War veteran Bill Alexander and SAS founder David Stirling.

In 1956 with the German initially struggling against a resurgent Russia in the West Russian War, the spirit of the rebellion was in the air. Soon, Britain was enflamed by rebellion as the British government was initially caught off guard. However the British Government forces and the German garrison were able to regroup and easily crush the rebellion.

In the aftermath both Alexander and Stirling were caught and executed. However many members of HMMLR were able to escape into either hiding or to Canada, helped by the fact that many in MI5's leadership were sympathetic to the cause. The initial unpreparedness for rebellion also caused a major shakeup in the British government, with Prime Minister Arthur Kenneth Chesterton being replaced by Barry Domvile.

The Lead-Up[edit | edit source]

The Bombing of 10 Downing Street[edit | edit source]

Maxwell Knight, who was secretly leading HMMLR after 1956, was searching for an opportunity to spark a new more successful rebellion against the British Collaborationists. In October 1963, HMMLR had an opportunity with the death of Adolf Hitler, as Hitler's inner circle bickered over the succession to Fuhrer, the resulting power struggle caused various negative effects on Britain. Most noticeably was the retreat of various German companies from Britain. This retreat of German companies and subsequent divestment from the British Isles wrecked havoc on the British economy, which was still in recovery from the Uprising of 1956, leaving many British citizens with stronger anti-German sentiments. Of course many British citizens already had a negative view of the Germans and their collaborators due to a perceived failure to successfully rebuild Britain after Operation Sealion.

The HMMLR for its first move against the collaborationist government, decided to sow chaos in the government by getting rid of Prime Minister Barry Domvile. This was done by the very showy method of bombing the Prime Minister's Office at 10 Downing Street, which killed Barry Domvile alongside some of his staff.

The Chimes of Midnight[edit | edit source]

With Barry Domvile dead, Ronald Nall-Cain was appointed to be an interim Prime Minister until the growing crisis in Britain was resolved. The main one being that Maxwell Knight reveals in a radio message that he is the leader of HMMLR, and calls on the people of Britain to revolt.
