5 men down due to Sgt..... FURY!

This certifiable lunatic hero has broken third squad, finished my scout team, and killed a man in second squad. It’s quite bad news for me, but watching it all happen over less than 1 minute’s time was an astounding experience.

Bud,

  So cool.  Another one of those amazing moments in this game that leave you staring in shock and sends a shiver up your spine.  

  After seeing and hearing the devastation wrought upon 3d squad, that rifleman from 2nd squad must have had ice water in his veins as he waited for the right moment.  A true jäger.

  Great story telling Bud.  You took my breath away with the last series of panels.

Triple post! Nice, I thought I was the only one able to get things that messed up. :-)

It lies in wait, you know. Then when some innocent, unsuspecting person comes along, out it leaps and seizes you around the ankles, dragging you back into its voracious maw. [shudder]

Thanks, Heinrich! I think the comment below says it well:

Yes, but he may have singlehanded turned this from tough to near-Impossible for me!

Dearest Hirschie

Thank you for all your recent letters, I treasure each one. And i'm so proud of you, none of the other girls in my B.D.M trupp have a sweetheart at the front. Kill as many dirty amis as you can, and come home safe.

yours Paula

P.S. What did you buy me in Paris?

The world is sometimes a very strange place.....Just had my own 'Sgt.Reed' moment, literally while reading this.  :o

Sadly I can't post it, but I believe @MOS:96B2P may have seen it.....This game can sometimes do remarkable things, it really can.  B)

I don’t want to be picky, but this letter probably would have been completely blackened between “Dearest Paula” and “your Hirschie”. 😎

Don‘t think, this sort of reporting would have been appreciated by the censors.

They’d have to get to see it first. Hirsch has not had a chance to post anything in weeks... ;)

Can't really blame the guys from 3rd Squad for wanting to stay put.

No. It’s where we in the world of CM get to push our men beyond the real world breaking point.

Ha! Good point. Then make him burn his letters after the battle.

Eh, wait! He has time to write letters during the skirmish?🤔

What? Posting on Facebook?

Perhaps some Tweets would be nice, too. Seem to be the Media of choice at the moment.

He wrote these after the battle, of course. Snippets of writing when one has a moment. :huh:

Ahhh, I see you have the story line very well thought through.

Will we see a panel with Hirsch and the firing squad at the end? Or will he receive the Ritterkreuz nevertheless?🤔
