  • On 19 February 1942, Nazi soldiers, tanks and planes invaded the capital of Manitoba. Seizing Winnipeg, they captured the Premier, Major and Governor General. They looted stores, burned books and threatened a death sentence without trial to all who opposed.

    This isn't some alternative history fiction. This was the brain child of the Greater Winnipeg Victory Loan organization.

    The event was a huge performance to raise money for the war effort, striking the fear of a real invasion into the heart of 'Friendly Manitoba'.
