    I'm sure many of you have read The Desert War, but I just began it a couple days ago, and still can't get over the story he tells in the first couple pages, whereas the allies were so unprepared they used sticks with red rags tied to them as anti-tank guns, and sticks with blue rags tied to them as Brens.

    He goes on to detail a sergeant who was court martialed because he pushed for a new anti-tank gun, claiming his previous one was eaten by ants :rofl:

    Just thought I'd share it with you guys and discuss any other little stories/comedy pieces from books/WWII.
