It's all gone. [[EverybodysDeadDave They're all dead]]. Only this one fortress remains against our impending doom. From here we can wage our war, stage guerilla attacks, or send a small, but elite strike team to hit where it hurts most. If we buy enough time, we might even be able to get our hands on that one thing that can save us, and [[BackFromTheBrink maybe, just maybe we can win]]. But if that fails, [[LastStand we can at least go down fighting]]. That is, assuming we can fight back at all, and our efforts aren't just delaying the inevitable...

* During WorldWarII, the Germans had a massive stronghold called the Alpine Fortress, which was constructed in the mountainous areas of southern Germany. It was built with the idea that if Germany were overrun, top Nazi officials, their staffs, and a large number of crack troops could retreat there and, with a stockpile of supplies and some limited production facilities, continue to harass the Allies for many years to come. However, the Fortress was far from impregnable by the time it became needed and it was taken easily shortly before the Berlin occupation. Even so, reports of its staggering defensive strength were partially responsible for the Allies' broad front strategy to take the southern regions and the Fortress before moving onto Berlin, rather than the narrow charge advocated by General Patton.
