I've come across with the sentence below:
Hitler's dream of empire had yet to crumble and send her fleeing for the shadows
I searched in online dictionaries but I didn't find any explanation for it.
So, could you tell me please what it means?
The fuller text is:
She fired six times shots on the shore of the Lake Rusalka, not attempting to hide what she did. Why would she? Hitler's dream of empire had yet to crumble and send her fleeing for the shadows... They called her... The Huntress. She was the young mistress of an SS officer in German-occupied Poland.
