5.0 out of 5 stars "Aaaaiiiiieeee!", 29 Oct. 2007
This review is from: "Commando": True Brit: The Toughest 12 "Commando" Books Ever! (Paperback)
Jam-packed with cheesy lines, square-jawed heroes, rip-roaring explosions, zipping bullets and good old-fashioned cold steel. A generation of schoolboys have grown up believing the Germans and Japanese of WW2 were simply cruel goons who, although possessed of low animal cunning, showed themselves as utterly inferior to the average British Tommy, largely by running madly towards their carefully prepared gun positions. Out of ammo? No problem, the average Hun or Jap can be instantly dispatched with a neat right hook to the jaw. What more can you expect from opponents who yell out such bizarre expressions whilst being terrified by the sudden appearance of a Hurricane/Matilda/Bren Gun Carrier spitting lead death. "Aaaiiieee, Spitfire!!" "Achtung! Britisher Sweinhundt!"
The action is interspaced with fact files about weapons and equipment that most of us were then able to repeat verbatim during our toy-soldier battles. You never know when you'll need to know that the Bristol Beaufighter had six .303 wing-mounted machine guns (four starboard, two port) and four nose-mounted 20mm cannon!
If you're buying for Christmas, for goodness sake get two, because there is no way you will be able to leave yourself without at least one of the copies! "Take that Fritz!"
