If you want to go full weird you could have a heretical AI that believes it's a WW2 veteran and it hijacked the body of a younger person with lots of cyberware.

Well, let's see. WWII ended in '45 and the CYberpapacy book was published in I THINK '92? So, about a 47 year span... let's call it an even 50 to make life easy. So we need a French military adventure from 50 years ago, or 1969-ish, a bit too young to be a French Vietnam vet.

This gives us the Western Sahara War (1975-1991), Shaba II (1978), Chad-Libyan conflicts (1978-87), or, for a younger guy, assorted humanitarian missions (Kosovo, etc) under the UN aegis. Of course, in each of these, you're supporting the ruling party and going *against* the rebels, rather than being a partisan fighting against the Nazis, so you lose a key element there.

Why not just have him be a former student who took part in the May 68 protests? It'd fit, if Malraux's arming nationalist/neo-nazi street punks. (As he did in oTorg.)
