That old dude teaching them knife fighting put all the young bucks to shame. Freaking ripped and probably twenty years their senior.
@ajgamble One of my favorite authors included a big segment about Carlson's Raiders in one of his military fiction series. Fascinating stuff. He also has a couple of series about the OSS - can't get enough of it.
@Danne_SWE That's a pretty good bloodline to have. Thanks for hte info, old OSS/SF/CIA stuff is one of my many geeky interests and I've run across a number of European immigrants that were some of the first dudes in those high-speed units. I have to go back and see which book that was in, but it was def related to Carlson's Raiders, the Col. that brought "gung-ho" into vogue and developed the Corps' fireteam structure.
@shagstar @LauraKinCA Yep but If the instructor in the black tank top had an eye patch AND a peg leg, he'd still be a B.A.M.F!
I was lucky enough to be subscribed to the youtube channel that released these. It was like one per week. Pretty cool stuff from WW2. Not the grainy B/W stuff.
