Baron Strucker has been tasked by the Fuehrer with the destruction of the town of Cherbeaux and all its occupants. Hitler hopes to stamp out the French Underground forces ensconced there. Fury fights Strucker to a stalemate, and barters for the safety of the town's occupants. Strucker complies, but, ultimately, renegs on his word, and destroys the town. The Howlers make it out safely, as does Fury and Strucker, each unaware of the other's fate. Hitler later learns that Cherbeaux is destroyed, but that Baron Strucker failed to destroy the Underground, earning the Baron a death sentence from the Fuehrer.
