The American War You Never Heard About! 1901

Vatic Note:  I have no doubt this war took place, but what surprises me is that I never learned about it in my American history classes.  I only heard about the burning down of the white house or Washington DC, but never about a German invasion.   So, I figured, if I never heard about it and my degree was in political science which is loaded with history, than maybe you have not heard about it either.

I have to admit, I not only never heard about it in grade school or high school, but I never heard about it in Collegs.  I was never tested on the subject.  So here we are with a major invasion onto our soil by a foreign country, and we never hear about it.  The entire episode was tied in with Mexico who wanted Texas back again and was still made at our having claimed so much Mexican territory that they never got back.

I bring this up, because I can just read history now, about what is going on right  now and given who controls the publishing industry, which are the same people that control the movie industry, its highly likely history will be written much different than what we are exposing on this blog.   I kind of see this as a prewar episode to WW I which probably had an impact on our role in WW I, since it was Germany who was he enemy even then.

Because Russia was under the Zionists control after their revolution, this entire write up made sense.  Remember, Germany and Russia became allies for a while during the beginning of WW II,  but now  we know they saw themselves as natural allies with respect to the entire continent and for over a long period of time.  

The American War You Never Heard About!  1901

The North American War was the bloodiest conflict in the History of North America, and was fought between the German Empire, in an alliance with Mexico, against the United States of America.

It was the second time in US history that a overseas power invaded the U.S. mainland, and first war in which the German Empire fought an overseas power.
The war lasted from July 27th, 1901, to February 8th, 1903.

The conflict has had a lasting effect upon all the nations involved in to varying degrees. For example, while most Americans do not bear a grudge against native Mexicans, Texans have a reputation for harbouring a very powerful grudge against native Mexicans, mainly due to the fact that one of the bloodiest fronts of the war was in Texas, which saw bitter fighting.  


The key cause of the war was Kaiser Wilheim II desire to create a German overseas empire. Germany may have had some colonies, but the Kaiser felt that they needed one that would rival even the British Empire, and thus give him an excuse to build Germany's navy to match. Some historians speculate that Kaiser Wilheim II also felt he needed to prove himself to the world, and have cited his hatred of the U.S.A as another reason.

Mexico, on the other hand, had lost over fifty percent of her land to the U.S. after the Mexican war, and desired to reclaim them, particularly Texas. This resulted in the Mexican President Porfirio Diaz secretly forming an alliance with Imperial Germany, and Germany began shipping weapons to Mexico, and helped trained the army, and recruitment began to ensure that Mexico had an army to match the US.

In the US, however, very little went on in the preparation of war, as few were aware of Germany intentions. However, British intelligence uncovered evidence that Germany was preparing to invade an overseas nation. However, rather then warn the US, the British Government was more concerned that Canada was the Germans target, and began stock piling weapons in the region for the populace. With the Boer War still raging on, Britain could not directly intervene in North America, and placed Canada top priority, and paid no heed to the US.  

First Landings; 1901

On July, 20th, 1901, a fleet of ships set out from Germany, bound for New England. Accompanying them were most of the German Navy, save the North Sea Fleet. The Kaiser had an Ultimanium sent to Washington, D.C., but deliberatly delayed it so as to catch the US by surprise. The British spotted the fleet, but, rather then inform the US, they began making preparations in Canada for the possible war.

However, over a week later, German troops landed on Long Island, and swept into Brooklyn, catching the Americans and the world by surprise. A spirited defence by 1000 state milita men in and around Brooklyn Brigde, however, delayed the Germans for at least two days, in an event that became known as the Battle of Brooklyn Brigde, buying time for refugees to flee the city, and also gave the time nessercy for word to get to Washington.

A naval blockade began around New York harbour, and German Naval Ships began bombing the US coast at random points, causing severe damage and loss of life. President Willaim McKinnly declared a state of war had begun between the German Empire and the United States of America. Governers from several states began sending National Guard and state militas to New York. Most of these militas were untrained and carried out of date weaponry, but had the advantge of numbers.

On June 8th, Germany presented the terms of surrender for the US, and gave them a week to reply. Meanwhile, German forces had established a formiddable beachead around the city of New York, which was now occupied by German forces, and was in the constant fear of the Germans.

More state militas began arriving, and a force of over 50,000 was assembled to confrot the Germans. They were beaten back, however, at the Battle of the Hudson by the German first army, and returned to Newark, which became the main area of a massive military build up by American forces from regulars to milita.

The Germans, on the other hand, had to ferry their troops across the Atlantic, but had the superority of weapons on their side.  This resulted in a stalemate forming, and little to no action occurred until Mexico attacked on August 3rd.

 The Venezuela Crisis of 1902–1903 showed the world that the US was willing to use its naval strength to force an American viewpoint in world politics; the crisis established President Theodore Roosevelt's Roosevelt Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine, setting a precedent for US intervention in South American–European affairs.

In April 1904, the balance of power was seriously shifted in Europe with the signing of the Entente Cordiale by Britain and France. This improved diplomatic relationship between the two countries allowed French and British military forces to be shifted elsewhere, usually to the detriment of Wilhelm II's hope for a Kolonialreich—an empire of German influence much like the British Empire and the French colonial empire.

Tsar Nicholas II of Russia refused to form a military alliance with Germany so the Kaiser determined that he should focus on strengthening Germany for a possible European conflict rather than an overseas invasion. The US invasion plans were shelved in 1906.[1]


Germany's Die Zeit newspaper first announced the discovery of the invasion plans on 8 May 2002.[1] The plans had been found at the German military archives in Freiburg. Reporter Henning Seitz of Die Zeit wrote that the discovery "proves a continuity between the Kaiserreich and the Third Reich because the Nazis also wanted to risk a final fight for world domination with the United States forty years later."[9]

The editorial staff of the American Heritage history magazine wrote a summary of the probable outcome of a notional Imperial German invasion of the US: they felt that the US under Roosevelt would not have accepted defeat or negotiated from a position of weakness.

They compared the Kaiser's proposed invasion to the War of 1812 when serious political differences among Americans were set aside following the British burning of Washington in August 1814—an event which finally united the "United" States.[8]
