* "The Rats of Tobruk". During UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, [[UsefulNotes/AussiesWithArtillery Australian troops]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome managed to halt a blitzkrieg launched by Rommel's Afrika Corps (the first Allied force to do so)]] and [[TheSiege subsequently spent over six months besieged in the city of Tobruk]] in eastern UsefulNotes/{{Libya}}. They survived first by hiding out in their intricate tunnel system and then by going on highly-cooridinated offensives against their besiegers. Nazi radio broadcaster [[PropagandaMachine Lord Haw-Haw]] tried to discourage the defenders by refering to them as "poor desert rats of Tobruk". [[AppropriatedAppellation The Aussies took the name]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rats_of_Tobruk ran with it.]]
