Last Stand At Central ParkEdit
With the SS Advancing on all fronts and the National Guard defenders, surrounded, and encircled. The National Guard fell back to the once beautiful Park of Central, After establishing Barricades all around the park stretching from to.
Many small skirmishes were done as the SS, attempted to try and over take the Barricade walls that surround the park, but neither was successful in doing so. As Night drew close the German Luftwaffe began a large aerial bombardment of the entire park and sorrounding blocks that were still under U.S Control. Despite the heavy damage inflicted on the Park, the defenses were known to still be intack, and strong enough to hold off the SS for at least 3 hours.
The SS Began to A Mass from the Occupied Norhern Sector of the Island, as well as the New Jersey side of the Hudson river, in order to launched a full scale attack on the Park's main line of defense, the Guns Sector. The U.S National Guad units already known that the Germans could attack from anywhere began to concentrate there defense from the Northern and Western walls, but the SS were known to be concentrating more on the Southern Defenses. This confusion would later lead to the destruction of the walls, and the SS's entry into Central Park.
The SS Launched a surprise attack on Central Park's Southern Walls at about 7:59PM, catching the National Guard units completely off guard. Despite such a successful surprise attack the attackers, were known to be mostly just Infantry, and half track APC units, at the present time. Though Some of the SS managed to climb the Debris Walls, and enter the top, they were unable to make it passed.
Artillery, began to pound the Southern positions, from deep within the ruins of Manhattan, the damage was so intense, that the defenders, were starting to lose too many infantry units from all over the wall. National guard forces from the East than arrived, to reinforce the south along with part of the other sectors of the walls surrounding the park.
With great reinforcements, the National guards men, managed to hold off endless waves of Nazi Attackers, for the passed 2 hours, despite the pounding from Artillery, and the Luftwaffe over head.
Things however started to take a turn for the worst starting on 9:39PM, when the German main force began to come in force, with great tank support, and endless waves of Infantry and air support, this antic caused the rest of the defenders, to desert there Posts on the Northern, Western, and Eastern walls, and come and defend the Southern walls, leaving the rest of the Park vunrable to any attacks, with just only 120 Infantry men able to hold those walls, while the South contained about 30,000 by this very moment.
With all defenses now breached and the National guard surrounded, on all sides. The United States decided to fight on until there last breath. Many of the National guard forces began to use Craters as fox holes, while some other began to use destroyed vehicles as there only means of cover close to the ruins of both the ancient castle of Belvedere, and the Delacorte Theater, Encampments were stretched in from center park to Bows Bridge, representing there final lines of defense.
By 11:04, the SS attempted to attack one Crater, but were driven back due to too much resistance in the fox hole, The SS than attempted to assault the ruins of Belvedere castle, but were repelled from RPG fire.
The Center line continued to hold for about 12 minutes, but the SS proved to be relentless. With Ammo running out, and the National Guards men exhausted around 11:22P.m The SS began to over run the Center park. By 11:39Pm The National guards forces in the park were whipped out, along with the entire city of New York, now under the control of Nazi Germany.
With the Victory in New York assured, Panic spread widely throughout New England, as People began to abandon the North Eastern States and fled to Canada, the Mid West, or to Europe.
By 11:43, A large column of civilian refuges retreated to Boston Massachusetts, the only city left in New England that was under United States control.
