Dealing with idiots is an occupational hazard of the moustache. Putting up with beefy English bully boys and politically incorrect smug buffoons with polished desks are part of the job.

However he chose the more rigid path of being questioned by Mike. Mike put it to him for a whole hour and gave it his all. Yet all he received was a bit of chat. Tired of talking the stuffed shirt moustacheless wonder asks for all the men to be put on the foredeck. Now that's the time to leave.
Take any War Picture Library, Battle Picture Library or Commando comic and you will always find those famous last words “arrgghhhhh” or even “donner und blitzen”.
Cowards try to prove themselves or officers interfere by trying to run battles “by the book”. The enemy is treacherous. Mysterious locations hold significant secrets. Sometimes a simple gun is the focal point of a unique karmic destiny.
There are those who are lost or left behind enemy lines where they invariably make a discovery – a hidden base, a wonder weapon or a traitor. The host of intangible struggles are often more significant such as the dark secret, the family shame, the family curse or the stigma of not being like the other chaps.
Strangely enough for stories about war and battle the killed the dead and the dying are usually absent.
There's a lot to like (and make fun of) among the dramatic titles, fantastic artwork, impossible stories, daring heroes, nasty bad guys, body building and not quite diamond rings advertisements.
