Le tristement célèbre massacre de Peterloo eut lieu en 1819, lorsqu’un rassemblement pacifique en faveur de la démocratie à St. Peter’s Field à Manchester. Il reste l’un des épisodes les plus sanglants de l’histoire britannique. Ce jour-là, la police chargea une foule de plus de 60 000 personnes réunies pour exiger des réformes politiques et protester contre la montée de la pauvreté. De nombreux manifestants furent tués et des centaines d’autres blessés, provoquant des manifestations dans tout le pays, mais aussi de nouvelles répressions du gouvernement. Ce moment déterminant de l’histoire britannique mena à la création du journal The Guardian.

With the Germans apparently near defeat in the latter part of World War II, a squad of American soldiers from the 2nd Infantry Division on a routine mission near Elsenborn in the Belgian Ardennes encounter a surprisingly strong German tank and infantry force. After a fierce firefight, the Americans escape and try to make their way back to their own lines to report the German surge. En route, they stumble across a German experimental site, still smoldering with flames from some devastating event. Surprisingly, this site is in Heidenfeld, Thuringia in Germany, although their own lines are hundreds of kilometers away in Belgium.
