Rommel, you magnificent bastard, Rat Patrol read your book!
I’ve never ever seen an episode of Rat Patrol. I do, however, like its premise that four G.I. dudes — an Army Fantastic Four – could pretty much take on the entire German Afrika Korps. “Take a breather, Patton. We’ve got this one.” And this hobby kit couldn’t possibly be worse than the plain vanilla ”box of men.”
