The British Armed Forces, also known as His Majesty's Armed Forces, are the military services responsible for the defence of the United Kingdom, its overseas territories and the Crown dependencies.
During the later phase of the Chimeran War, the British Army was the only European military left resisting against the Chimera, with all the other European military forces having being either destroyed or gone underground.
The British military's numbers had been severely reduced by the war with the Chimera in the first three months, after which they resorted to guerrilla and unconventional warfare when the Chimera invaded Britain on October 1950. It is during the occupation that British military intelligence learned that the Chimera were commanded by Angels and were able to capture one for exchange with the United States for military support. However, the exchange ended in disaster during Operation Deliverance when heavily concentrated Chimeran forces annihilated American forces in York on July 11, 1951.
After the failed "American Resupply", the British kept fighting hard pressed in small skirmishes and special operations until the final joint assault in the Thames River during the Battle of London, which culminated in the destruction of the Chimeran Tower in London and eradication of the Chimera throughout the United Kingdom on July 14.
Following the end of the Chimeran occupation, the British participated in the liberation of mainland Europe in Operation Overstrike and were pushing back the Chimera through Eastern Europe. By 1953, the British were already preparing to enter into Russia. Unfortunately, they were pushed back by the Chimera and once more reduced to a guerrilla force as of 1957.
Recruitment posters EditMany recruitment posters and hand-painted recruitment signs can be seen during the campaign of Resistance: Fall of Man. This indicates that the British Army were in need of new recruits in the wake of the Chimeran invasion. Many of these advertisments are based on real-life recruitment posters that were used during World War I and World War II.
