Call of Duty 3Edit
- "Baron followed his goal to server with the renowned Robichauld, just as his father did before him, but the bloodshed he has seen now causes him to back away."
- — Call of Duty 3 bonus materials section.
Baron, serving as a radio operator under Lt. Robiechauld, is routinely criticized by Robiechauld, who believes him to be a coward for not engaging the Germans directly. Baron argues that his job is to protect the radio- without it, his unit will have no direct link to higher command. Baron receives orders via the radio saying that they are to take an industrial area nearby, but they soon face a major force of German troops that were in the area already.
After the battle at the industrial yard, Baron is sent to Mount Ormel to replace the Polish radio operator who was killed in action. He attempts to argue against being sent away from his unit, but Lieutenant Robiechauld coldly dismisses him, pointing in the direction the Polish are and saying, "Get going!". While there, Baron calls in artillery strikes on the German tanks as Bohater directs. During an intense firefight with the Germans, Ulan tells him to "Get out of here". Baron refuses, saying "My job is to call artillery strikes". Tired of being accused of cowardice, Baron continues to hold his ground as the Germans advance, despite the Polish soldiers around him arguing that he is running away from bullets, not from his job. Baron is killed by the advancing Germans moments later, but the Polish soldiers take his radio, enabling them to continue calling in badly needed artillery support.
- "My job is to keep the radio safe!"
- "I'm not a coward, I won't run away!"
- "Show the Lieutenant some respect!"
- "I'm not running anywhere! I'm not afraid-!"
- When Baron is killed, his name appears if the player aims his cross-hairs at him, as if he was just injured. If the player moves up the hill and then comes back, Baron's body will have disappeared.
- Later on in "The Mace" when the other Polish soldiers ask what happened to Baron, Ulan replies with "stupidity".
- In the last cutscene of "The Mace", it is strange how Lt. Jean-Guy Robiechauld doesn't ask Major Stan Jackowitz what happened to Pvt. Leslie Baron. He may have been told before talking to "Papa Jack", or he may have been informed after his conversation with Major Jackowitz.
- Pvt. Baron's father served with Lt. Jean-Guy Robiechauld in WWI, which is probably why Baron ended up in Robiechaulds squad in WW2. This information is revealed in the Character Bios on the game.
- Baron is the only character to appear with 2 different factions in Call of Duty 3, both in the Canadian and Polish campaigns.
