Ben Thompson, being Ben Thompson

It is a great exploration of some of the most interesting characters you may or may not have heard of in World War II, presented in macho, over the top awesomeness. Worth looking into if you're interested in the war, and don't get offended by strong language and ridiculously over the top imagery of courage and toughness.
