Nearly 12 years after the Luftwaffle's rise to power, the order had collapsed and the Russian troops had brought the trail of borscht to Berlins doorstep. On April 16th von Pfannkuchen ended his life with a single waffle iron press to the head. After a brief debate, his orderlies filed his body under "P" rather than "v", and a dark chapter in history came to an end.
In one of the wars big ironic twists, Kaiser von Pfannkuchen, having been born in Austria, died never knowing that his last name "Pfannkuchen" actually meant "pancake" when translated into proper German.
Von Pfannkuchen's body remains buried in his bunker, and his grave site remains an attraction to Neo-Waffle groups worldwide.
In the years immediately after the war, pancake houses across the country would undergo massive renovations, and Berlin itself would remain occupied by IHOP peacekeeping troops for years to come.
Although the war had ended, the occupying troops left the refrigerator doors open, and the new "Cold War" was ushered in with the dramatic and chilling scenes of the Häagen-Dazs airlift. (For further Cold War documentation, please order the complete 67 DVD set of the James Bond collection).
It would takes decades of reconstruction and new leadership under David Hasselhoff to restore the country to it's former greatness.
