  3. The French were serious about punishing those who collaborated with the enemy.
  4. Had already conquered much of Europe, waging war in North Africa, trying to come up with a workable plan to invade Great Britain and simultaneously orders an invasion of Russia. Maybe it's a good thing that old Adolf was a tactical idiot. Had he been satisfied with taking Europe, the official language of Europe would likely be German.

  19. The Mark 14 torpedo, they usually ran deeper than what the set depth and could run beneath the hull of the target. They often exploded well before contacting the target because of problems with the magnetic detection detonator which necessitated the deactivation of the magnetic detonator. With the magnetic detonator deactivated, if they did manage to contact the target, the impact detonator often failed. They could also make a big circle and strike the vessel that launched the torpedo.
