Only time in history where an M3 Stuart could take on a Tiger at close range and blast it!

I used to buy war picture library comics all the Germans kept saying was "ACHTUNG ENGLANDER SWINE HUND" and the Japanese "BANZIA and AEEEEI"

Good old 'COMMANDO' comics! "Die you imperialist englander dog". Sadly/amazingly? still available here in Australia.

That is sad Greame, although the weapon sounds where always great BLAT BLAT BLAT for a Tommy gun, PONG for a morter and the imortal KERBLAAM for any type of explosion from grenade to howitzer

I think thats why I like the old movie "Sahara" so much because it starts with stereotypes and then breaks them alittle.

I gave up on the comics (which I loved) not because of the obvious stereotypes, which I could see through, but the quality of the artwork. I remember a comic my father had from the 50s that was about an American squad in Italy trying to take a farmhouse and the artwork was fantastic! Too much Hanna/Barbara simplistic line drawing today. Can look at something that comes across as an afterthought.

Commando, I've got some old ones I picked up a while back. Best one is where a lancaster crew is having troubles and some how the rear elevators were put on backwards :lol:

They have released a bound version compling some 30 comics just recently. I know they are old and perhaps a bit polictically incorrect in their stereotypes but to be honest theres a lot worse **** out there.

That might be it. Through the fuzzy haze of memory it sounds familiar. Great line drawing. Even this Johnny Red ain't half bad with the drawing.
