** At the beginning of the game, there is talk of an "impending" war with Germany. There is no mention of Poland being invaded and France's subsequent declaration of war on Germany several months prior.

* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys: Completely averted. Although the player character is Irish, the French Resistance are your primary allies and are generally depicted as stone-cold [[{{Badass}} badasses]] to the last man and woman. In the prologue, when [[WarWasBeginning the war has just broken out]] and Sean is fleeing the Nazi invasion, it's possible to see French farmers rushing out to fight the Germans despite being armed with nothing more than farm implements and old hunting shotguns.

* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: The real-life French Resistance was pretty {{Badass}} to begin with, but this game takes it to outright ridiculous levels - by the mid-to-late game it becomes a fairly regular occurrence for Resistance forces to meet the Germans in full-scale open battle and ''win'', or at least hold their own competently.

* BritishAccents: Well, the British SOE is involved, so...
** Wilcox: Glasgow. Probably the best voice acting in the game. His voice actor is from Glasgow
** Bishop: King's English. Isn't ''great'', but is at least believable.
** Sean: Northern Irish. Sounds a bit fake, and occasionally [[OohMeAccentsSlipping disappears]].
** Skylar: King's English. Sounds ''ridiculous''.

* TheObiWan: Vittore is very fatherly to Sean throughout the game, [[spoiler: making it all the more painful when he [[MentorOccupationalHazard finally dies]].]]

* HelloBoys: The ''very first thing'' you see in the game is a stripper wearing pasties. If you have a new copy of the game, it came with a code to remove said pasties.



* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The developer, Pandemic, was bought up ElectronicArts due to their success with ''{{Mercenaries}}'', but the sequel to that game bombed badly. As a result, the dev team was broken up after being allowed to finish this title.

* PublicDomainArtifact: On one mission, you're sent to recover an artifact that the Germans are trying to get their hands on. It's strongly implied to be the Holy Grail, although [[TheUnreveal you never actually see it]].
