Erlangen in The Man With the Iron Heart[]

Erlangen became infamous in the uprising staged by the German Freedom Front. In July, 1945, Erlangen saw the first German "suicide bombing", when a Werewolf agent sat down among a few American GIs watching a baseball game with explosives strapped to his body and blew himself up. Bernie Cobb was a witness to this event.

The following year, German politician and Nazi opponent Konrad Adenauer was assassinated during a GFF mortar attack at a rally in Erlangen.
