Gregor Strasser is born in Bavaria, Germany. An early member of the Nazi Party, Gregor Strasser will prove to be outstanding with political organization, taking the Nazis from a small splinter party in the southern state of Bavaria to a national party with a huge following.

Unfortunately for Strasser, his vision of National Socialism will differ from that of Adolf Hitler. Strasser will be much more radical, advocating the breakup of all major capitalist institutions. Hitler, in contrast, will be far more willing to let the capitalist and industrialist leaders continue as they have been so long as they support him.

This will be the main reason why Gregor Strasser is assassinated on Hitler's orders during the Night of the Long Knives in 1934.
