NotesNews: Oct. 20: In a desperate preparation for the coming Allied invasion of Germay, Hitler tonight ordered the call-up of all able-bodied males from 16 to 60 for a new force named the Volkstrum, or People's Guard. The Fuehrer complained of "the defections of all our European allies" and said Germany now stood alone against "our Jewish international enemies." The Volkstrum HQ will be in the mountain caves at Salzkammergut, suggesting that Hitler is thinking of making a last stand in Bavaria. [Chronicle of the 20th century]
