Biography[edit | edit source]
Early life[edit | edit source]
O'Neal is a British soldier who enlisted in the British Army sometime prior to 1942, before joining the No. 2 Commando, one of a dozen battalion-sized units within the Special Service Brigade. Like most commandos, he likely trained with his unit at Achnacarry in the Scottish Highlands.
St Nazaire Raid[edit | edit source]
In the early morning hours of 28 March 1942, O'Neal was among a section of commandos aboard the HMS Campbeltown, a destroyer converted into an explosive-laden battering ram with an objective of destroying the dry dock. Following the vessel's collision with the dry dock, O'Neal fought to secure the area while Lieutenant William Holt made contact with Captain Beck and used his radio to call in an artillery barrage.
After regrouping aboard the HMS Campbeltown, the commandos divide into squads and take command of the former German headquarters. O'Neal is among a trio of commandos who join Lieutenant Holt as he destroys a nearby power plant and uncovers blueprints on the rocket equipment of the V-2. O'Neal may be present when Holt encounters the nemesis Horst Brenner. He may also be present when Holt eliminates a German infantry unit, destroys three V-2 rocket hulls and destroys a docked German U-boat, which are optional objectives and may not be completed.
It is possible for O'Neal to be killed at any point during his appearance, and his subsequent status if he survives the raid is unknown.
