>with the aid of reserve army, arresting the fuhrer's inner circle/central forces
by framing them with conspiring against the fuhrer
>The fuhrer surviving the assassination attempt and trying to resume command in central
>Last but not least,

Well...that and FMA was heavily influenced by Nazi Germany... The 2003 Anime movie FMA Conquerors of Shamballa involves Hitler attempting to weaponize alchemy for use in WWII
