The Young Officers Coup of Janderschstaff was a military coup d'état executed by the Young Officer Movement, a group of junior Gilderdammic officers disillusioned by their perceived exploitation at the hands of the aristocracy, in 1940 S.R. Lead by supply corps officer Bernhardt Rogge, the Young Officers overthrew their commanders before leading troops into Mosbach and killing Prince Tyol Westarp, leaving the nation open for their rule.

Background Edit

At the time of the coup, the Gilderdammen Civil War had been raging for over 12 years with casualties well into the tens of thousands. Morale was universally low and desertion had reached epidemic proportions. Anti-military and anti-aristocratic sentiment swelled across the empire as the factions adopted broader conscription policies.
