This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Call of Duty: Finest Hour article.
The name could be a reference Edit
To the first level in Medal of Honor: Frontline, labeled Your Finest Hour. I know the guys who worked on Call of Duty also worked on Allied Assault, so it's not much of a leap, IMO. Yüri Kaslov 15:29, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
Sounds very probable actually. You should add it to Trivia. N7 Btw. You are awesome.
N7's probably right, I mean, if they could use music from Frontline in a certain level, then they could easily reference the names of levels too. Sgt.Sandwich | Talk shop | Combat record 15:38, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
They're both a reference to this:
"What General Weygand called the Battle of France is over. I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us.
Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this Island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.
Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'"
It's a fairly well-known speech by Winston Churchill. Evil Tim 16:42, February 12, 2011 (UTC)
