Is it though?
Remember the box includes conversion rules to 2.0 and it was being written at the same time as 2.0. There's a very strong chance the writers of both were at least aware of the other's work, if not even directly collaborating.
That one statement by the trooper could easily apply to either, or both timelines.

Remember though that it's just the words of one man. It's essentially a rumour.
Probably at least partially based in fact, and as an SAS trooper they're possibly more aware of to state of the world than most soldiers of equivalent rank.

It's also quite possible the French don't want anyone to know just how badly they were hit (if at all) so they can at least maintain the illusion of strength even though internally it's chaos.
