    Durchhalteterror

    "Einrichtung von Standgerichten als Teil des Durchhalteterrors im Dritten Reich" (aus einem Text über Endphaseverbrechen während WK II)

    Again a neat one-word German term which will be difficult to express so succinctly in English I think.
    Just for a start: "terrorising measures to force/encourage people to stand firm"

    The institution of drumhead courts-martial as part of the ongoing terror in the Third Reich.

    Of course, "ongoing" misses the key aspect of "durchhalten," but as mikefm says, there's really no succinct way of translating it. Some sources I've found simply refer to it as "Nazi terror," (which, of course, also misses the point).

    Edith sez, maybe something about the terror of persevering / being forced to persevere?

    clearly as a translation. Nothing else occurs to me other than lengthy paraphrases.

    Thank you for your suggestions! I think something like "measures to force people to persevere/stand firm" is probably the best way to describe it.

    "terror against 'defeatists'"

    "Durchhalteterror" is more comprehensive I think.
    "terror against defeatism" would be closer to the German I'd say.

    or from Earl Ray Beck, Under the Bombs: The German Home Front, 1942-1945

    "As a consequence, this period was also marked by increased police and court measures against defeatism and opposition. Late in May, the party ..."
