Though he really wanted to fight in the second world war, the Soldier was rejected by every branch of the military. Refusing to take no for an answer, he bought his own ticket to Europe. After arriving and finally finding Poland, the Soldier taught himself how to load and fire a variety of different weapons before going out and killing loads of Nazis, for which he was awarded several medals that he designed and made himself. He finally stopped after he heard that the war was over, in 1949!
The Soldier is very flexible, with his rocket jump allowing him to reach places not even reachable by the Scout! He is well balanced, and is one of the 'meta' classes in the competitive format. He has 200 health, second only to the Heavy.
