Medal of Honor: European Assault is the 6th installment in the long running Medal of Honor series. European Assault was released for PlayStation 2, Xbox and GameCube in June 2005. The game's story was written by John Milius, the writer of Apocalypse Now. The plot is based on Lieutenant William Holt, an operative in the Office of Strategic Services, and follows his deployments to allied forces in France, North Africa, the Soviet Union and Belgium.Medal of Honor: European Assault was formerly titled Medal of Honor: Dogs of War, however, this was changed due to the implied connotation of mercenaries. The name was changed to European Assault, which is fitting considering that gameplay takes place in the European Theatre (which included Europe and North Africa).
