(Scotsman)   He was the last person to make a recorded kill in war with a bow and arrow, captured 50 Nazis wielding only a sword, but probably killed more of his own troops due to playing the bagpipes for them before going into combat   ( scotsman.com) divider line

Interesting choice, given that the actor James Doohan was himself a total badass in the Mad Jack mould.

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.

hardinparamedic: I wonder what went through the minds of those Nazis when they saw one of their officers take an arrow to the  face?

I'd like to think that the last thing that went through his head, other than that arrow, was to wonder how the hell John Malcolm Churchill ever got the best of him.

These are the guys I think of when I see that commercial for Dollar Shave Club: "Your handsome-ass grandfather only had one blade... AND polio!"

These guys were a different breed of men. The bravery and badassery weren't a façade.

My grandfather actually did die of polio, so the commercial makes me laugh and then feel bad.
