* After ''Kampfgruppe'' Peiper murdered a number of civilians and American prisoners of war (the "Malmedy Massacre") during the Battle of the Bulge, the U.S. Army made it part of their battle plan to destroy Joachim Peiper and his unit (a battlegroup of the 1st SS Panzer Division). Peiper ended up walking back in deep snow to the main German lines with no tanks and about 770 men remaining. But that was only the beginning. He and a number of his men were then tried after the war for the murders, convicted, and sentenced to death. The sentences were commuted, and Peiper was released from prison at the end of 1956. He moved to France in 1972, but when his identity was revealed in a local newspaper in 1976, his house was burned down with him in it. The case remains open to this day, as even the nationality of his killers (who called themselves "The Avengers") was unknown; Peiper had been accused of similar deeds in both Italy and Russia, generally involving burning down villages.

** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mariya_Oktyabrskaya Mariya Oktyabrskaya]] may be one of the Red Army's shining examples of this trope, when her husband was killed in action near Kiev in 1941 she enlisted and sold all her possessions to raise the 50,000 roubles needed to donate a tank to the army on one condition, they let her drive, the State Defence Committee agreed thinking it'd be good publicity. When she arrived at the battle of Smolensk in 1943 the other soldiers considered her a publicity stunt... until she started fighting, maneuvering her T-34, emblazoned with the words "[[CrusadingWidower Fighting Girlfriend]]", like a veteran. She destroyed many German machine gun and artillery positions and was the first of her brigade to breach the enemy positions. And [[http://www.badassoftheweek.com/index.cgi?id=64071327108 that was only the beginning of her two-year campaign against the Nazis]], which would ultimately gain her the Gold Star of the Hero of the Soviet Union, the highest award for military bravery offered by the USSR.

* The Barbary Pirates demanded tribute from a certain [[YanksWithTanks obscure new nation]] on the grounds that NobodyEverComplainedBefore. The result was that the [[ThisMeansWar US Navy]] came after them and spent several years beating on them. During the UsefulNotes/WarOf1812 the Barbary Pirates went back to their old tricks and afterwards the US Navy returned and gave them another whaling.[[note]]This is where "the shores of Tripoli" in the [[SemperFi Marine Corps]] anthem comes from, being the place where the Corps saw its first action overseas and kicked pirate ass.[[/note]] At this the British decided that the colonials had a pretty good idea going, peace having broken out in Europe. So they sent the [[OhCrap Royal Navy]] after them. Finally after all that was done, the French simply landed and conquered the whole area.

** And the burning fire of Soviet vengeance only got hotter when the Red Army discovered the real reason why the Nazis wanted Russia and the fate that awaited every Slavic had the Nazis won. With the discovery of Auschwitz, Nazi ideology of "Living Space", and the brutal tactic of the Hunger Plan. The Great Patriotic War became more about the Slavic peoples' right to *exist* .

* As referred to in a film about the life of Wyatt Earp, after the "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral", Earp hunted down and killed most of the Clanton gang. Not because of the shootout; because three weeks later, Ike's boys shot and killed Wyatt's brother Morgan, while he was playing billiards. And did it from behind, to boot. The famed gunfight was just business for Wyatt, due to his being town marshal and the Clantons refusing to abide by the local "no guns inside the deadline" ordinance. Backshooting his brother made it personal.
