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

    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.
