Markoff_Cheney: [img.fark.net image 500x321]still by far my favorite war stories are this guy. this guy and that dude who flew the SR22 who wrote such a damned fine book about it. Mad Jack was the purest definition of 'badass' to exist in human form for a good span of time that surrounds him. the perfect combination of balls, stupidity, brazen disregard for his own health, courage bordering on suicidal, and honor that was decades if not centuries older than the era it was displayed in.
lack of warmth: More and more of these stories are really giving me the impression that German soldiers weren't really all that bad to fight against, they seem to be bullies who fell apart when someone stood up to them with force. However the Japanese typically surrendered by killing themselves, only after they did their best to kill their enemies.It sure explains why our Army did so well in Europe, but the Marines had to save them in the Pacific.
