  • "Mad" Jack Churchil

    I stumbled across this colorful character while reading as a guest from a member signature that simply read:
    COOMAANNNDOOO!
    -Jack Chuchil
    I thought, no-one does that, So I did some reading and found him to be quite the character but didn't find any great deal of information and was wondering if anyone knew of any books etc,etc.
    Hello by the way new member here.

        Welcome to the forums mad mike.
        Yes indeed, quite a character, do a forum search and you should be able to find a recent discussion about him that I remember dimly.
        As I recall he used to throw his brief case from the train window into his garden as he passed it (the station being further down the line than his home) and then walk unencumbered back to his resident. Though this may've been someone else, I think it was Churchill. He also hunted Nazis with a longbow and broad sword.

          One site called him 'badass of the week.' Sounds like a fun guy.

            I've always wanted to compile a book of these historical characters or bad-asses. I think they'd be inspirational to today's slack-jawed youth. What do you reckon Reb? We could do a collaboration?

                You know, that wouldn't make a half bad book.

                Zaitzev, Simo Haya, Audie Murphie, Eric Hartmann, Mad Jack, all in one 'Definitive Encyclopedia of Bad-Assery in the Second World War'.

                They could devote the entire last half of the book to 'Who would win in a fight' scenarios in incredible detail as to quench the young adult demographics inevitable questions in that regard, and thus prevent them from spamming forum with said drivel.

                And sorry I could not travel both
                And be one traveler, long I stood
                ...
                Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
                I took the one less traveled by,
                And that has made all the difference.

                  We'd have to add Gaius Julius Caesar and Lucius Cornelius Sulla.

                        Seems like the sort of guy you'd want to sit, drink beer with, and listen to war stories!
