I am referring to the scene where the British tank commander refuses to heed the advice of the US soldier who tells him there is a German tank waiting in ambush at the side of a building; the tank commander replies that although he believes the soldier, he will not destroy the German tank because he is under orders to not damage civilian property. Therefore when he advances, the British tank is destroyed. At the time I thought to myself how could anyone be so utterly stupid to do this- surely they must have made it up.
A good while ago I read on a few forums that this incident really did happen, yet when I was reading a post on one of the Ubisoft.com forums a poster claimed that this never happened and it was just used as a kind of 'dramatic device' by the makers of the show.
If it did happen, then that tank commander was a suicidal (if well meaning) idiot. If it did'nt happen, then I feel it portrays the British as inflexible and incompetent buffoons who ruined the attack for the Americans. What is the truth behind this? :confused:
Donutz is your main man he'll be here soon!
and all his hawtness :naughty:

I wouldn't call the british troops incompetent buffoons, they may've been a little strict with orders, but surely not incompetent.
Some Soldiers follow orders to the line, just seems like he was doing so. He paid with his life in the end.
Did this incident actually happen or was it made up, thats the question I'm asking.
It will probarly hapend, Maybe not at same exact same place and time. americans didnt realy care about destroying some stuff, british did care about other proparty's thought.
It was a jagdpanther wasnt it? If so the tank commander was SOL either way. :P
I actually think it was a Tiger. I remember in the episode the turret turned to face the commander when he had is binocs drawn up on it.
