    World War III (2020)

    Sometime after the Mexican Civil War Scott Mitchell is promoted to General and given command of the Joint Strike Force (JSF) an evolution of the Marine Expeditionary Force. During those same years the European Union evolved into the European Federation, Russian re-militarized after being left out of an intercontinental missile shield created by the US and EF, and a terrorist organization calling themselves the Forgotten Army was formed made up of people who felt that the three major powers (US, EF, and Russia) had forgotten about the lesser people of Africa, Balkans, and other areas. Although ironically the group was entirely funded by Russia in an attempt to justify aggrieve expansion by pinning the group on the EF or US.

    In the lead up to the war Scott Mitchell was not involved too much in the events leading up; his actions manage to further push the buttons European Federation and the Russian Federation, although rather unwilling. Among his actions during the lead up to war include the defense of Kennedy Space Center in Florida from a terrorist attack, and the failed attempt to abduct European Federation’s defense minister in Copenhagen the quickly end in the JSF’s retreat from the city empty handed.

    After the attempted invasion of the Washington D.C by the EF, the JSF under the command of Gen. Mitchell were fully deployed to combat both the now hostile Russian forces and European forces across the European Theater. After such not much is known about Gen.Mitchell’s actions throughout World War III
