vossiewulf: Someone needs to make that an Advanced Squad Leader Scenario and come up with rules for Pissed Off French Wife squads.


E144.1:  Irregular unit: Battalion Pissé Épouses Français.  This unit ignores the normal restrictions for infantry according to Chapter B's Terrain Chart.  The attack factor increasing with each step loss is intentional and is not a printing error.  Attempts to apply E133.4 ("Make Me a Sandwich" LOSS/GAIN TABLE) will result in tethered Command counters losing steps according to QRDC Close Combat Table.

You should spend more time on the range.  Maybe check to make sure the bases for your scope mount aren't loose.

Should be directed by Clint Eastwood. As soon as he is done lecturing the chairs of course.

Also need a rule for the deadly "does this make me look fat?" close combat, with any response leading to random step losses.

BenJammin: Lando Lincoln: Many Americans don't like stories about how Axis soldiers were human beings.

My dad was very offended by Letters from Iwo Jima, because it "humanized the Japs."

My father enjoyed the movie, and he was there.

Yep, they'll be sheltering the Von Trapp family in the castle.


Pearl Harbor showed us that it's important to have a love interest in the story.

CliChe Guevara: My grandfather was a POW in that area, though not at that particular spot, and he said things got very weird at the end; soldiers from both sides trying to help each other get to US lines and safety, and all trying to avoid the few loyal Nazi officers still roaming about. The POW's avoiding them as the officers were under orders to execute them, the Germans as they didn't want to get rounded up for 'scorched earth' and 'last stand' suicide missions.
 All the Germans wanted to do was get to US lines to avoid the Soviets, or just to get to whatever sector their families were in before the country got carved up by all the different factions that were moving in.


There was some Army captain whose MoH citation got me to read his bio. Near the end of the war, he went scouting in a jeep, contrary to orders, and ran smack-dab into an armored column. He got out of the jeep and walked up to the lead tank, and the officer popped the hatch. The captain said, "I accept your surrender." The German replied, "You've got a driver an a jeep." The captain said, "The Soviets are there, we're here. This is Germany. To whom do you want to surrender?"

The German surrendered the column.

Frothy Panties: dericwater: Enemabag Jones: When this becomes a movie, it should be Tarantino.

Please don't let McG, Michael Bay or Tom Cruise near this.  Spielberg couldn't do it right either.

Or Peter Jackson, who would make this into a 5 part serial movie with extra slo-mo scenes, incorporate a whole host of back story and tangential story lines into the movie.

and lots of walking....lots and lots of walking (marching?)


It's not about the destination, it's about the journey.

Please, please don't let Tarantino produce this. He'll have Uma Thurman doing her toenails for 15 minutes while a battle is going on outside, with regular closeups of her left pinkie toe. The SS troops will be shown accompanied by The Gimp, and- ohmigod, I can't bear to think what other crap will be ejected from that warped brain.
