If we're talking songs about historical events now, we're gonna need some Sabaton! This one is about the heroic and brutal defense of Finland from Soviet invasion during WW2. Ultimately, Finland was forced into a disadvantegous peace treaty but, as many russian officers said "We just conquered barely enough land to bury our dead". Ah, the winged hussars. Most, if not all of their battle accounts read like action movie scripts. Largely responsible for Vienna not falling to the Ottoman Empire, which would have changed the face of Europe forever. The infamous 7th tank division, nicknamed the "Ghost division" because they somehow managed to appear where they were needed with neither friend nor foe expecting them. Led by Erwin Rommel, who some say was the best German general of WW2, though how much of his exploits were propaganda is unknown. There is some evidence that he actuallly had ties to the resistance.
