Kąty Wrocławskie in WorldwarEdit

Kanth was the town where Benjamin Rubin's terrorist cell brought their stolen explosive-metal bomb in 1966, hoping to bring about the destruction of what remained of the Greater German Reich after the Race-German War of 1965. The terrorists garrisoned there simply because it was the closest town they could find, after their truck broke down on the way to Dresden. Mordechai Anielewicz, a Jewish veteran of three wars, tried to talk sense into Rubin, as did Gorppet, an intelligence male of the Race. Rubin, determined to commit suicide in a blaze of glory like the defenders of Masada, ignored their pleas for reason. He activated the detonator, only to find that the weapon, imperfectly maintained for over 20 years, was a dud. Rubin surrendered to the Race, and the Kanth standoff ended anticlimactically.
