The village of Stonne became infamously known by how dangerous the French Char B1 tank was in combat. One man made a name for himself, Capt. Pierre Billotte who commanded the thickly armoured “Eure” tank which sustained several attacks of the German offensive during May of 1940. The tank destroyed 13 German tanks of the Panzer III and IV variant as well as taking over 140 hits from German tanks and anti-tank guns and surviving the battle. The town itself exchanged hands between the French and Germans seventeen times during the two days of struggle for control of the city.
The city of Dinant is located north of the Ardennes forest in Belgium and took part in the fighting to defend Belgium and stop the German advance across the river Meuse. The city saw considerable combat between the French and Belgium forces against the German Panzer divisions including Rommel's 7th Panzer "Ghost Division" as they would be nicknamed. After the battle, Dinant itself lay in ruins and was a shell of its former self. This is represented in-game by how destroyed the city looks.
