Later on, she leads a successful assault on the Kreisau Circle's base, sporting a few new stitches and a promotion from Deathshead himself.

[[AlternateHistory It is 1946,]] and the Allies are losing WorldWarII thanks to a [[StupidJetpackHitler sudden technological leap]] made by the Nazi regime. B.J. Blazkowicz is sent on a secret mission to assassinate the man responsible for this: [[BigBad Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse]]. Unfortunately, the mission goes horribly wrong, B.J. suffers head trauma, and spends the next fourteen years in an insane asylum. Come 1960, Blazkowicz awakens only to find that the worst has happened: the Nazis have won the war and now rule the world with their incredibly advanced technology. Blazkowicz joins a LaResistance group, the Kreisau Circle, in Berlin in an attempt to make things right... but how can he win a war that's already been lost?

* AlternateHistory: Not only has WorldWarII lasted three years longer, but the Nazis have won. This is emphasized by famous historical and cultural images being Nazified, such as Music/TheBeatles' iconic AbbeyRoadCrossing photo being performed by German soldiers.

** In the climax, [[spoiler:BJ rushes out of an elevator and opens fire on Deathshead. Who is literally sitting behind laser-proof glass, proclaims that he knows BJ, and says this will be the last time they meet. Then Deathshead baits BJ into killing his old foe with his bare hands, and [[TakingYouWithMe whips out a grenade]]...]]


Added DiffLines:

** In the prison, BJ can overhear two Nazi soldiers discussing "super-concrete". One of them thinks it poses a serious public health hazard, while the other keeps nervously deflecting and parroting the Nazi party line.

* AmbiguouslyGay: Caroline Becker has a pinup girl poster in her room but displays no romantic behavior towards anyone in the Kreisau Circle. If she is homosexual, she certainly counts as BadassGay as well.
** Bubi is a lesser example. He's certainly CampStraight and he seems to have a creepy attraction to B.J. and even [[spoiler: insists that he survive selection at Camp Belica because he's a "strong worker"]]. Nonetheless, [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes the only person he cares for is Frau Engel.]]

to:

* AmbiguouslyGay: Caroline Becker Caroline's new design has something of a lesbian vibe: no-nonsense haircut, single earring, tattoos. She also has a rather prominent pinup girl poster in her room but displays room. However, no mention is made of her sexual or romantic behavior towards anyone in history, so it remains up to the Kreisau Circle. If she is homosexual, she certainly counts as BadassGay as well.

* ArmorIsUseless: Takedown is an instant-kill, regardless of how many layers a normal soldier is wearing. {{Justifed}}, as B.J. stabs them in their armors' weak points, most commonly the neck.

** A literary allusion occurs in the last mission when [[spoiler: a wounded Blazkowicz]] partially quotes Emma Lazarus' poem "The New Colossus" in his [[spoiler: possibly final]] inner monologue. The poem was famously inscribed on a plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty, and coupled with the image of Anya holding up a light to guide [[spoiler: the prisoners escaping from Deathshead's compound]] serves as a rather touching homage to the concept of freedom in an otherwise overwhelmingly oppressive world.

** As seen above, one of the guards at the prison is thoroughly convinced that their healthy leadership is covering up how harmful the concrete used in most buildings is to the populace, pointing out when the other guard starts coughing after having admonished him for such paranoid talk.
