North African campaign[edit | edit source]
On the evening of 17 May 1942, Abbott and two comrades were being held within a German outpost in Tunisia following their capture. The facility is attacked by Lieutenant William Holt, an American agent with the Office of Strategic Services, as well as elements of the 7th Armoured Division. After clearing out pockets of resistance throughout the bunker, Holt succeeds in freeing Abbott and the two other captured commandos, Corporals Platt and Rissik, who eagerly offer to assist Holt in completing his objectives.
