No. of Recommendations: 9 a Brit, we can be fairly proud of our war record (I play it all the time).

Whereas the US seem to wander into a war when it is half won, then make loads of films about it (Saving Private Ryan etc), and even faking history by replacing gallant Brits with glamorous Yanks (UB571),we Brits (yep, that's me), actually fight from the beginning of a war. An unusual concept, apparently.

Maybe we should make a film about Vietnam, replacing clueless dispirited Yanks with toffee nosed, moustachioed plummy voiced Brits....Hell, we might even rewrite history and win it.

Independence day looms. Be thankful you weren't colonised by the Spanish...or maybe you have been:)

Cheers, PB
