History

World War II

Michael death

British Officers announcing the death of Michael Carter

In 1939, World War II broke out in Europe, causing immediate conflict between the armed forces of Nazi Germany and the United Kingdom. When the war began, Edwin Jarvis, an aide to a British general, had to forge the general's signature on a letter of transit to ensure the safety of Ana, a girl of Jewish descent, from the Nazis. The scandal that ensued caused the accusation of treason for Jarvis and his dishonorable discharge from the Army.[1]

Meanwhile, the British forces had to fight against the seemingly unstoppable war machine of Nazi Germany on the battlefields of Europe and North Africa. However, in 1942, the British Army managed to defeat the Axis troops in the battle of El Alamein. At the same time, Royal Navy ships had sunk 300 Axis ships.[2]

Prisoners

The British prisoners of war in the custody of the Nazi research division HYDRA.

By October 1943, Allied soldiers of many nationalities, including British, who had been captured by the Germans were sent to work at the weapons facility run by HYDRA in Austria. Once there, they were separated by nationality, because the officer in charge of the facility, Colonel Lohmer, believed that would cause conflict among the prisoners.[3] Those prisoners were liberated when Captain America infiltrated the facility in November 1943.[4]

By April 1945, the German forces were suffering defeats on almost all battlefields of Europe. Around the time of Adolf Hitler's death, the British forces led by Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery managed to liberate most of Denmark from German rule.[5]

21st Century

This section requires expansion
Emil Blonsky had joined the Royal Marines and was swiftly promoted to the rank of Captain. Despite receiving an incredible track record, Blonsky refused to be promoted to Colonel, claiming that he wanted to be a fighter for as long as he could. Despite reaching the age of 39, Blonsky refused to allow his body to slow down, and continued to be considered one of the most formidable fighters in the Armed Forces. His career would come to an end in 2011, when he was loaned to serve as field leader of the Strategic Operations Command Center before transforming into the Abomination.[6]
Planes in Vanaheim

Royal Air Force jets arrive in Vanaheim.

On November 4, 2013, the Royal Air Force intervened during the Battle of Greenwich, scrambling two Eurofighter Typhoons to fire on the Dark Elf Flagship. However, the jets were drawn in by the portals created by the Convergence, transporting them to Vanaheim. The jets were returned safely to Earth once the Convergence ended.[7]
