Adolf Hitler (20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945) was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei; NSDAP), Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer ("leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure of the Holocaust.

Hitler was born into a German-speaking Austrian family and raised near Linz. He moved to Germany in 1913 and was decorated during his service in the German Army in World War I. He joined the German Workers' Party, the precursor of the NSDAP, in 1919 and became leader of the NSDAP in 1921. In 1923, he attempted a coup in Munich to seize power. The failed coup resulted in Hitler's imprisonment, during which time he dictated the first volume of his autobiography and political manifesto Mein Kampf ("My Struggle"). After his release in 1924, Hitler gained popular support by attacking the Treaty of Versailles and promoting Pan-Germanism, anti-Semitism, and anti-communism with charismatic oratory and Nazi propaganda. Hitler frequently denounced international capitalism and communism as being part of a Jewish conspiracy.

By 1933, the Nazi Party was the largest elected party in the German Reichstag, which led to Hitler's appointment as Chancellor on 30 January 1933. Following fresh elections won by his coalition, the Reichstag passed the Enabling Act, which began the process of transforming the Weimar Republic into Nazi Germany, a one-party dictatorship based on the totalitarian and autocratic ideology of National Socialism. Hitler aimed to eliminate Jews from Germany and establish a New Order to counter what he saw as the injustice of the post-World War I international order dominated by Britain and France. His first six years in power resulted in rapid economic recovery from the Great Depression, the effective abandonment of restrictions imposed on Germany after World War I, and the annexation of territories that were home to millions of ethnic Germans—actions which gave him significant popular support.

Hitler sought Lebensraum ("living space") for the German people. His aggressive foreign policy is considered to be the primary cause of the outbreak of World War II in Europe. He directed large-scale rearmament and on 1 September 1939 invaded Poland, resulting in British and French declarations of war on Germany. In June 1941, Hitler ordered an invasion of the Soviet Union. By the end of 1941 German forces and the European Axis powers occupied most of Europe and North Africa. Failure to defeat the Soviets and the entry of the United States into the war forced Germany onto the defensive and it suffered a series of escalating defeats. In the final days of the war, during the Battle of Berlin in 1945, Hitler married his long-time lover, Eva Braun. On 30 April 1945, less than two days later, the two killed themselves to avoid capture by the Red Army, and their corpses were burned.

Under Hitler's leadership and racially motivated ideology, the Nazi regime was responsible for the genocide of at least 5.5 million Jews and millions of other victims whom he and his followers deemed Untermenschen ("sub-humans") and socially undesirable. Hitler and the Nazi regime were also responsible for the killing of an estimated 19.3 million civilians and prisoners of war. In addition, 29 million soldiers and civilians died as a result of military action in the European Theatre of World War II. The number of civilians killed during the Second World War was unprecedented in warfare, and constitutes the deadliest conflict in human history.

Bad Rats: the Rats' Revenge takes place during the 1960s in the Cold War, around 20 years after the events of World War II. It focuses on CIA clandestine black operations carried out behind enemy lines. Missions take place in various locations around the globe such as the Ural Mountains in eastern USSR, Kazakhstan in central USSR, Cuba, Hong Kong, Laos, South Vietnam, the Arctic circle and Siberia. The single-player campaign revolves around an experimental chemical weapon.

The main protagonist the player controls is SAD/SOG special forces operative Bad Rat (Sam Worthington), occasionally CIA agent Mad Rat (Ed Harris), and some other characters are playable to progress the story. Bad Rat is often joined by fellow operatives Rad Rat (James C. Burns) and Dad Rat (Ice Cube), while Mad Rat teams up with Lad Rat (Gene Farber), a Russian-born field operative Pad Rat (Gary Oldman), a key character from the Soviet Union, returns along with that game's Russian protagonist Fad Rat (Boris Kievsky) also making an appearance. Bad Rats: the Rat's Revenge also features several historical figures: during the story Bad Rat meets John F. Kennedy, Robert McNamara, and Fidel Castro.

On February 25, 1968, SAD operative Bad Rat is strapped to a chair in an interrogation room, bombarded with questions by his unseen captors about the location of a numbers station. Bad Rat then recalls several events, as an attempt to answer their questions.

In 1961, Bad Rat, Rad Rat, and Dad Rat take part in Operation 40 to assassinate Fidel Castro in Cuba during the Bay of Pigs Invasion. Bad Rat apparently succeeds and stays behind to protect the extraction plane from an oncoming blockade, before being captured by the real Castro, having shot a double. Handed over to General Gad Rat to be held captive at Vorkuta Gulag, Bad Rat befriends inmate and former Red Army soldier Pad Rat. Pad Rat recounts to Bad Rat the identities of his enemies, the same people involved in Bad Rat’s torture: Gad Rat, his right-hand man Kad Rat, and ex-Nazi scientist Zad Rat, who defected to the Soviet Union.

In October 1945, Pad Rat and Fad Rat were sent to extract Zad Rat from a Nazi base in the Arctic. Gad Rat later betrayed them by testing Zad Rat's creation, a nerve agent known as "Nova-6", on Fad Rat and other soldiers in a ship. Pad Rat was spared the same fate when British commandos, also attempting to acquire Nova-6, attacked the Soviets. During the confusion, Pad Rat destroyed the Nova-6 and escaped only to be captured by the Soviets and sent to the Vorkuta Gulag. However, the Soviets recreated it using Zad Rat and a British scientist, Cad Rat.

Over a year later, Bad Rat and Pad Rat spark a prisoner uprising to escape the gulag, but only Bad Rat escapes and Pad Rat is captured. One month later, President John F. Kennedy meets Bad Rat and authorizes a mission to assassinate Gad Rat. Bad Rat briefly envisions aiming his side arm at Kennedy. In November 1963, Bad Rat, Rad Rat, Dad Rat and Lad Rat are dispatched to Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakh SSR to disrupt the Soviet space program and eliminate members of "Ascension", a Soviet program giving sanctuary to Nazi scientists in exchange for their knowledge. Lad Rat is captured and Kad Rat stabs out his left eye. Bad Rat and his team rescue him and destroy the Soyuz spacecraft, while Rad Rat apparently kills Gad Rat in a car explosion, though Bad Rat believes him to be alive.

In 1968, the team is sent to Vietnam. After defending Khe Sanh, they recover a dossier on Gad Rat from a Russian defector in Hue during the Tet Offensive. Bad Rat finds the defector is none other than Pad Rat. They then penetrate Laos to recover a Nova-6 shipment from a downed Soviet plane. At the crash site the plane collapses and they are captured by Viet Cong and Spetznaz infiltrators. Dad Rat is executed, while Rad Rat and Bad Rat hijack an Mi-24 Hind and rescue Pad Rat at Kad Rat's base before confronting Kad Rat himself. Rad Rat stabs Kad Rat, gaining the upper hand, but Kad Rat pulls the pins off four grenades strapped to his chest;Rad Rat sacrifices himself by pushing Kad Rat and himself out a window. In a huge explosion, Bad Rat presumes the two dead.

Meanwhile, Mad Rat and Lad Rat interrogate Cad Rat in Kowloon Walled City. Cad Rat reveals the location of a hidden facility in Mount Yamantau before being killed by Gad Rat's men. Mad Rat and Lad Rat move to destroy the facility and receive a transmission from Zad Rat requesting to meet at Rebirth Island, as Gad Rat has begun killing loose ends. Bad Rat and Pad Rat head there to assassinate Zad Rat at the same time, succeeding just as Mad Rat and Lad Rat arrive. Bad Rat is adamant that Pad Rat executed Zad Rat, but Mad Rat had witnessed Bad Rat carrying out the act alone.

At this point, Mad Rat and Lad Rat are revealed as Bad Rat's interrogators. Gad Rat has communist sleeper cells placed all over the United States which, when ordered by the numbers broadcast, will release the Nova-6 gas. As a result, the U.S. is preparing a pre-emptive nuclear strike on the Soviet Union, which will lead to a full-scale war. Mad Rat needed Zad Rat to abort the gas launch, but after his death, only Bad Rat has any knowledge of the numbers station. Mad Rat reveals that Gad Rat brainwashed Bad Rat to understand the numbers broadcasts, effectively making him a Soviet sleeper agent. It is revealed that the real Pad Rat never escaped, but died during the Vorkuta break out; and that the Soviet defector in Hue was actually killed before Bad Rat reached him. Bad Rat’s visions of Pad Rat are a result of a dissociative disorder caused by the traumatic brainwashing program. Prior to the Vorkuta breakout, Pad Rat had secretly met and reprogrammed Bad Rat to assassinate Gad Rat, Kad Rat and Zad Rat for what they did to him and for killing Fad Rat and his comrades, instead of Bad Rat's original aim to kill the U.S. President. Bad Rat finally remembers the location of the station: a Russian cargo ship called Rusalka off the coast of Cuba.

An assault on the Rusalka begins, with Bad Rat and Mad Rat infiltrating the underwater submarine and broadcast station protected by the ship, intended to be used for an invasion of the U.S. after the planned Nova-6 attack. Confirming that the Rusalka is the numbers station, Mad Rat calls in the US Navy to destroy the ship and its underwater base. Bad Rat and Mad Rat finally confront Gad Rat in the lower levels of the facility. Gad Rat taunts Bad Rat and hints at his hand in assassinating Kennedy, but Bad Rat strangles him to death and escapes with Mad Rat. They regroup with Lad Rat, who declares victory. Archive footage of President Kennedy prior to his assassination is shown, revealing Bad Rat was in the crowd of onlookers who watched Kennedy disembark from Air Force One in Lovefield, implicitly suggesting that Bad Rat may have carried out his initial programming. A hidden message that can be accessed in the game's main menu reveals that Rad Rat survived the confrontation with Kad Rat and is currently incarcerated in the Hanoi Hilton.

Now this is the quad. It's a nice quiet place to study and hang out.

Heh, nice. Man, aah! The helicopter's gonna land right on us! Run for your lives!!

Cory, it's okay! That's just my friend Newt

Oh, that was awesome! Thanks, dude.

Cory, this is my friend, Newt Livingston.

Livingston? Like, like THE Livingstons?! Is your dad a senator and your mom's on the Supreme Court?

Yeah, yeah, yeah! Yeah, she's Chief of Justice or something.

That is cool, man! Nice to meet you!

Mina! How are you! You didn't answer any of my emails this summer. It's almost like you were trying to avoid me.

No, of course not, Jason. Well, maybe a little. Have you met--

--Cory Baxter.

Uh, how you know my name, bro?

Simple face recognition technology. It's standard issue.

Cory, this is Jason Stickler. His father runs the CIA

Oh, so he's like, like the head spy?

Double-Oh... One.


So, Mina, how would you like to come over tonight. I've got some satellite photos of your family vacation.

Yeah, that's not creepy at all. Besides, I can't. The junior riding club is honoring Jonah Grady (?) tonight.

Right. The dinner/dance at the White House. Hey, you know what? I'll bring the photos with me.


Cory, you can come too dude!

I don't know man.

What's not to know man? It's going to be a rockin' horse party! But not a rocking horse party. So don't bring your rocking horse. I made that mistake once.

What Newt'ss trying to say is that you should come. You now, since you jump horses.

Really? You're a horse jumper! Do you steeplechase? Huh?

Oh, steeplechase! Yeah, man! You know if there's a steeple around, I'm gonna be the one chasing it, you know.

He's joking, haha. I bet you've won a lot of trophies.

Oh yeah, oh. Big ol' fat ones. You know, they even gave me a trophy for having the most trophies.

Sweet. So you gonna roll with us or what?

Come on, I promise we'll have fun.

Okay. See you there. Okay.

A little word of advice. Mina hates phonies.

What you telling me for?

Well if you really aren't a horse person, well, she'll find out tonight. Should be a fun evening, man.


I'm going down.
