I know some groups use real german comands and/or phrases.

Will this be somthing we will be doing, or will it be at our own discretion?

We don't really give orders in German... because most people wouldn't understand!

However, German phrases and exclamations bandied about certainly add to the atmosphere!

Thats kind of what I was getting at :D

A few 'achtungs', and a couple of 'Shneils', and a 'Mein Gott' or two never hurt any one :P

I was an avid Warlord reader from issue 2! (Never did get issue 1... )

I remember the cover of issue 2 featured an Allgemaine SS officer in full flight, because a massive bomb had just shattered the window and was heading straight at him - it had something suitable chalked on it, like "up yours, Adolf" or somesuch!

My mate from Germany tried to teach me how to properly say the word Right, in German, but for the life of me I couldn't get it.

I could only say the word Left, so he came up with a phrase for me to say when I wanted to refer to Right.

Left = Links

Right = Nine, Das Unter Links :) (I think that's how you spells it)

Left- links
Right- recht
Hande hoch is always appropriate too.
Ihre pass bitte- your pass please
Halt - universal
Alarm! always as a warning.

Haha, straight out of MoH/CoD those ones!

'Der Amerikaner hat hundekuche in der tasche...'

As usual, I'll be screaming in German, where applicable.

Nice find JD, I remember reading the whole series of Darkies mob in Battle, fighting the japs in Burma, superb stuff. Another personal favourite was Kampfgruppe Falken, but I can`t remember if it was in Battle or Warlord. It seemed quite an apt comic strip at the time as it was very similar to the Sven Hassel novels I was ploughing my way through, much better reading than the stuff they gave me at school to read. :D
