John Curry transformed ice skating from a dated sport into an exalted art form. Coming out on the night of his Olympic win in 1976, he became the first openly gay Olympian in a time when homosexuality was not even fully legal. Toxic yet charming; rebellious yet elitist; emotionally aloof yet spectacularly needy; ferociously ambitious yet bent on self-destruction, this is a man forever on the run: from his father's ghost, his country, and even his own self. Above all, an artist and an athlete whose body time and time again - sometimes against his will - becomes a political battlefield.
The Feather Clan soar above the battlefield and swoop down to meet their enemy. Like other clans, several units in the Feather Clan have the Flying unit type. But unlike other clans, Feather Clan units have access to the Soar signature ability, which allows a squad of all-flying units to move 3 spaces instead of 2, and move out of zones that contain enemy units. This gives the Feather Clan an unprecedented level of mobility on the battlefield, and with abilities like Volley and Target, they promise to use this mobility to launch devastating strikes against their opponent. The units of the Feather Clan will own the sky and destroy any who stand in their way.

The Gustav and Dora were the names given to two of Germany's 80cm ultra-heavy railway guns. Developed in the late 1930s, these mammoth artillery pieces were built principally to help destroy the main forts along the Maginot Line. These twin giants weighed almost 1,350 tonnes and could fire shells weighing seven tonnes to a range of almost thirty miles. Similarly, the Thor siege mortar was also a giant on the battlefield, sporting a 60cm calibre barrel, six mile range and weighing in at over 120 tonnes. Although these guns were not ready to be used in the Battle for France, they were later used against the Soviet Union at the siege of Sevastopol to good effect.
