5 Battles "Call of Duty" Should Explore in the Future

2. Siege of Leningrad 

Era: World War II

Wars are won by soldiers. Sometimes on the front, sometimes from behind enemy lines, but how many stories have you heard where soldiers had to fight to reclaim what was once there's? Leningrad fell under Nazi control for a grand total of 872 days, with Soviet forces spending that entire rime trying to reclaim their city once more. 

Why Include This?

The locale could serve as a great backdrop for a story of rebellion against the occupied Nazi forces. Additionally, the conditions within Leningrad during the siege could serve as a grave reminder of what an unsympathetic force is capable of. It was reported that some of those who weren't forced out of Leningrad by the incoming Nazis were forced to resort to cannibalism in order to survive, and not just the consumption of human bodies so much as murdering others for your own survival.
