** The Second Europan War that forms the backdrop to the game is based on UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. Like the Entente and Central Powers of World War I, The Atlantic Federation and the Imperial Alliance were both unsatisfied with the postwar balance of power and began to rearm as the resumption of hostilities came to be seen as increasingly inevitable. Thus, a new continent-wide war breaks out some twenty years after the first. The Empire invades three of the Federation's border republics, an act of aggression mirroring Hitler's invasion of Poland in 1939, using new techniques of mechanized warfare and rapid advance to quickly overwhelm everything in its path. Emperor Maximilian takes the place of Adolf Hitler, a charismatic leader with ambitions of world domination who takes advantage of the climate of ethnic nationalism and racism that was allowed to fester during the interwar period. The Darcsen people take the place of the Jews and Roma, who are distrusted by people on all sides and find themselves subjected to ethnic cleansing and genocide as a scapegoat to justify the Empire's conquest. Finally, the ancient Valkyrur serve as a counterpart to Nazi Germany's idea of the superior Aryan race, and their investigation of Valkyrur sites and artifacts mirror the interest of high level Nazis in archaeology and the occult. Indeed the powers of the Valkyria and their ragnite lances take on the same strategic importance as weapons of mass destruction such as the atomic bomb did in World War II, with the major powers racing to obtain them first in order to gain an overwhelming advantage. The main thing for which there is not a direct comparison is that Gallia, which serves as a FantasyCounterpartCulture for Switzerland by its policy of armed neutrality, is invaded by the Empire for its ragnite, while in real life Nazi Germany left Switzerland alone.

** Both Gallia and the Empire have varying degrees of this. For example, Gallian soldiers utilize weapons with WW2 German specifications and abhor their Darcsen minority. Their prejudice against Darcsens later sparked a massive rebellion by the time of Valkyria Chronicles II. On the other hand, the Empire is a mix between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union with a bit of Romanov Russia thrown in for good measure. In the Empire, Darcsens captured in Gallia are sent to gulags to work in inhumane conditions. Yet, many Darcsens do service in high ranks of the Imperial military, which is unthinkable in Gallia. The Empire also promised Darcsens a nation of their own upon the war's end.
