The Resistance was created after the American and Allied powers surrendered in the Second World War against the Axis Powers. After the American Government capitulated as a result of the Atomic Bombing of Washington D.C. The Resistance was created in order to stop the invading German and Japanese troops on the coast. Although lasting two years, they ultimately failed and eventually collapsed. Even though Germany and Japan rule America with an iron fist via Nazi America and Pacific States of America, the Resistance operates secretly and carefully underground and undercover, mostly in the Neutral Zone. The Resistance, possibly aided by Nazi Connolly, made an assassination attempt against SS Obergruppenführer John Smith in 1962, killing Smith's driver and severely wounding SS officer Erich Raeder. Smith was only slightly wounded and managed to kill all but one of the attackers. Smith captured the last attacker alive. It was later revealed that the Resistance was supported by Reinhard Heydrich in order to get SS Obergruppenführer John Smith out of the way for Martin Heusmann's grand plan of domination of the Reich.
Resistance Radio is an undeground radio station run by the American Resistance based within the Neutral Zone. Resistance Radio broadcasts its message of anti-Nazi/anti-Japanese occupation of America and resistance. Resistance Radio anchors often play songs and stories related to the occupation to mock both the Nazis and the Japanese.
