Anybody ever see "Gung Ho" with Randolph Scott? About Carlson's Makin Raiders. Good H2G stuff with real guys. Highly recommended. Any others?

Great movie, one of those things that got me really interested in the military as a career when I was but a wee lad.

LOL I used to watch that as a kid all the time. I saw the DVD at Fred Meyer about six months ago. It was part of a 3 or 4 pack of old WWII movies. I passed it up and regrettably haven't seen it since. If I see it again I'll definitely pick it up. I still remember the guy in the tractor, and the airplane strafings.

The Military Institutions of the Romans
Quote:
THE POST EXERCISE

We are informed by the writings of the ancients that, among their other exercises, they had that of the post. They gave their recruits round bucklers woven with willows, twice as heavy as those used on real service, and wooden swords double the weight of the common ones. They exercised them with these at the post both morning and afternoon.

This is an invention of the greatest use, not only to soldiers, but also to gladiators. No man of either profession ever distinguished himself in the circus or field of battle, who was not perfect in this kind of exercise. Every soldier, therefore, fixed a post firmly in the ground, about the height of six feet. Against this, as against a real enemy, the recruit was exercised with the above mentioned arms, as it were with the common shield and sword, sometimes aiming At the head or face, sometimes at the sides, at others endeavoring to strike at the thighs or legs. He was instructed in what manner to advance and retire, and in short how to take every advantage of his adversary; but was thus above all particularly cautioned not to lay himself open to his antagonist while aiming his stroke at him.
