** 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.

** 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 "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.

*** This was also the reason for Arminius betrayal. As a son of a Germanic chieftain he had been sent to Rome as a hostage and had been educated there, even reaching the rank of equites. But that did not change the fact that the Romans had taken him away from his family and stolen his life. Three Legions worth of Romans rather regreted that.

** During the [[UsefulNotes/PunicWars Second Punic Wars]], the Greek city-states of Sicily, allied with Rome, switched sides after [[CurbStompBattle the Carthaginian triumph at Cannae]]. Rome replied sending against them the survivors of Cannae led by their best general, Marcellus, who razed two cities and then started besieging Syracuse while his troops sent raiding parties. The Sicilians were not impressed, especially as the Romans were failing against Syracuse's walls and Archimedes' inventions... And then the Romans broke through, [[RapePillageAndBurn sacked and demolished the city, and slaughtered anyone but those who could be useful, raped and/or enslaved (and some of those cathegories too, as Archimedes was mistaken for an old fool and killed)]]. Sicily became a Roman province as soon as the other city-states were informed of what had just happend;
** The Romans first came to Judaea when the Jews called them in as protectors, and were comprensibly ''pissed'' when they rebelled. When the Romans were finished, ''over one million Jews'' had been killed, 97,000 others were sold as slaves, most of the others had left Judaea, and Jerusalem had been ''completely'' destroyed save for a single wall of the Temple.

* [[AwesomeMcCoolName Buford Pusser]] was a sheriff in Tennessee who was riding with his wife to a call when a car pulled up and fired on them, killing her and critically wounding him. He [[OneManArmy single-handedly killed every man]] and then went on to wage a war on moonshining, illegal gambling, and several other criminal activities in his county before dying in a car accident. This man was so awesome that not [[WalkingTall1973 one,]] but ''[[WalkingTall2004 two]]'' movies were made based on his story, the second of which starred DwayneJohnson.
