Raid on St Nazaire
Lance Corporal Winters is a character featured in Medal of Honor: European Assault. He is a member of No. 2 Commando of the 2nd Special Service Brigade and participated in the successful St Nazaire Raid.
Early life Edit
Winters 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
In the early morning hours of 28 March 1942, Winters 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, Winters fought to secure the area while Lieutenant William Holt made contact with Captain Beck and used his radio to call in an artillery barrage.
Later, with their objectives completed, the commandos attempt to escape through the town and out into the country-side. Holt and his team encounter another group of commandos pinned down inside the town, and are able to relieve them. Winters is among this troop, albeit seriously injured and therefore incapacitated. Holt's men remain behind while he moves onward with a different squad. Winters' status following this action is unknown.
