Fury is set in April 1945, towards the end of World War II. "Wardaddy" (Brad Pitt), the commander of the tank "Fury," leads his five-man unit on a desperate mission against the German army. To raise the authenticity of the film, the production used a real Sherman tank from the U.S. Army and a real German Tiger tank.
