The terrible twosome wrap up their miltiary series with a general
chin wag about what've learned over the last 6 weeks.
Not a lot, but in the course of this they consider does SF ever
really tell miltiary stories? Where there is space to tell such
stories?. How do Computer games fit in to genre
military fiction?. Is there a miltiary fiction genre of it's
own? Why is Outcasts so poo?
They also consider modern British casualty sensitivity and
consider the allogorical power of science fiction and how it's
sometimes wasted in miltary SF. Matt is unkind to Footfall while
discussing asymetrical warfare and Kehaar is as always the steady
voice of wise counsel (not.)
Needless to say they bounce around such historical matters as
comedy Nazis, Northern Ireland and the British Indian
