Medal of Honor Monday: Arnold L. Bjorklund


"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty in action with the enemy near Altavilla, Italy, September 13, 1943.  When his company attacked a German position on Hill 424, the first platoon, led by 1st Lt. Bjorklund, moved forward on the right flank to the slope of the hill where it was pinned down by a heavy concentration of machine gun and rifle fire.  Ordering his men to give covering fire, with only 3 hand grenades, he crept and crawled forward to a German machine gun position located on a terrace along the forward slope.  Approaching within a few yards of the position, and while continuously exposed to enemy fire, he hurled 1 grenade into the nest, destroyed the gun and killed 3 Germans.  Discovering a second machine gun 20 yards to the right on a higher terrace, he moved under intense enemy fire to a point within a few yards and threw a second grenade into this position, destroying it and killing 2 more Germans.  The first platoon was then able to advance 150 yards further up the slope to the crest of the hill, but was again stopped by the fire from a heavy enemy mortar on the reverse slope.  1st Lt. Bjorklund located the mortar and worked his way under little cover to within 10 yards of its position and threw his third grenade, destroying the mortar, killing 2 of the Germans, and forcing the remaining 3 to flee.  His actions permitted the platoon to take its objective."

From 1st Lieutenant Arnold L. Bjorklund's Medal of Honor citation, awarded on September 6, 1944.

Thank you for your service and may you be at peace,

"Hustler Squad" aka "Dirty Half Dozen"



The sweet VHS cover!

 A group of woman are tasked with assassinating several high ranking Japanese military officers.  To do this they have to act as whores and seduce then kill their marks.  Can these true femme fatals achieve their mission or will they die on their backs against the might of the Japanese invaders?!  This is actually a great flick!  Don't get me wrong, the budget is low and most of the acting is shit but it is actually done pretty well and is quite enjoyable.  I mean come on, its basically the Dirty Dozen with tits and what can be wrong with that?  Anyway, take the time to take a gander below and decide for yourself.



A great grindhouse flick,

"Dear Friend Hitler..." aka "Gandhi to Hitler"



Now this is suppose to be a serious film that follows Gandhi and Hitler and a few other characters during both men's lives.   The critics kicked it to shit but I think the attempt was meant to give honor to Gandhi's nonviolence movement against Hitler's policy of genocide.  So if you are so inclined, check it out but I think I can pretty much get the idea without wasting the time.


You haven't see Hitler until you see him as an Indian!  Classic Weird WWII without meaning to be.

Now that's weird!!!!

"Konflikt '47"


The crew over at Clockwork Goblin have a Beta version of their upcoming Weird WWII rules to support their excellent minis line.  Give it a gander and see what you think.

You can never have to much Weird WWII,
Brian

I love these Red heavy armor troops.  Brutish and functional, just like the Soviet military!

"Eine Armee Gretchen" aka "Frauleins In Uniform", "Frauleins Without Uniform" & "She Devils of the SS"








The war is coming to a close and all the sexy women of Germany want to give themselves up to the Fatherland and do their duty.  But when the girls start raising their own morale things get a but complicated.  This is actually more of a skin flick then the old classic Nazi Sexplotation shit but saying that, it's still shit.  So if your into Nazi fetish stuff or just like girls in uniform then his is your piece of trash.

More of a Skinemax flick from the 70s then anything,

August Landmesse

Read about this hero of mine.

 Landmesse at the launching of the Segelschulschiff Horst Wessel

A man who deserves a chest full of medals for his courage and loss in the face of the evil that his people where embracing.


An average Joe who was not afraid to be who he was,

"Soldiers of the Dammed"

It’s the Eastern Front, 1944. The Russians are pushing the German Army back through Romania. Major Kurt Fleischer, war-weary commander of an elite troop of German soldiers, is ordered to escort a female scientist into a mysterious forest behind enemy lines to retrieve an ancient relic. As his men begin to disappear in strange circumstances Fleischer realizes that the scientist is part of Himmler’s occult department and there is something in the forest that is far more deadly than the Russians.  Now I haven't seen this one yet but it looks pretty good from the trailer.  Check out the trailer below and see what you think.


WWII, Nazis, Russians and the occult?  Now that's my kinda movie!!
Brian

These guys are screwed!!

"Breath of Bones"

When a downed Allied pilot is cared for by a small Jewish community, the Germans let loose Hell on them to find him.  The Jews then bring forth a creature of legend to defend against the Nazis' invasion.  Can this supernatural force be enough to protect them or will it succumb to the evil it was created to defeat?  This is a great story which has actually been slated to become a new film in the future.  I have always loved the idea of a Jewish golem taking it to the Nazis ever since I saw the classic Weird War Tales 8 cover.  I have used this creature in several of my weird war games and it is always an awesome sight seeing it beating the shit outta the Ratzis!  Swing by your local comic shop and pick it up for a great weird war read.

 The coolest Weird War Tales cover, ever!!!

Eat mud, Fritz!!!!!

"P-51 Dragon Fighter"


The Nazis are up to their evil ways and have found a way to use dragons for their plans of world domination.  Can the Allies find and neutralize this new threat of will this become a new Dragon Age?  This is a Sci-Fi Channel quality flick that has a decent idea but with such a low budget it fails in almost every way.  Check out the trailer below and see what you think.


I wanted to like it but nope,
