Taking Back France
In August 1944, Allied troops arrived in Paris. They had successfully invaded France and were now marching on the capital.

Some Damned Thing in the Middle East led to a limited US-Soviet atomic war in the early 90s. Although neither country got more "than it's hair mussed" (in the immortal words of Dr. Strangelove) it brought about a global economic collapse, while the final nuclear "spoiler" attack against the Mideast oil fields brought about a huge oil price spike: the massive costs of rebuilding and decontamination meant that the world had essentially reached "peak oil", in the sense of decreasing returns on investment, by 2000 AD.
