Who is your countries greatest war hero?
Mine personally since im American is this badass motherfucker.

After landing on Yellow Beach near Ramatuelle, Murphy's platoon was attacked by German soldiers while making their way through a vineyard. He retrieved a machine gun that had been detached from the squad and returned fire at the German soldiers, killing two and wounding one. Two Germans exited a house about 100 yards (91 m) away and appeared to surrender; when Murphy's best friend responded, they shot and killed him. Murphy advanced alone on the house under direct fire. He killed six, wounded two and took 11 prisoner.

GOD BLESS THE USA

In October 1942, during the Battle for Henderson Field, his unit came under attack by a regiment of approximately 3,000 soldiers from the Japanese Sendai Division. On October 24, Japanese forces began a frontal attack using machine guns, grenades, and mortars against the American heavy machine guns. Basilone commanded two sections of machine guns that fought for the next two days until only Basilone and two other Marines were left standing.[9][10] Basilone moved an extra gun into position and maintained continual fire against the incoming Japanese forces. He then repaired and manned another machine gun, holding the defensive line until replacements arrived. As the battle went on, ammunition became critically low.
Despite their supply lines having been cut off by enemies in the rear, Basilone fought through hostile ground to resupply his heavy machine gunners with urgently needed ammunition. When the last of it ran out shortly before dawn on the second day, Basilone held off the Japanese soldiers attacking his position using his pistol and a machete. By the end of the engagement, Japanese forces opposite their section of the line were virtually annihilated. For his actions during the battle, he received the United States military's highest award for valor, the Medal of Honor.

Pvt. Hector Cafferata was a 20-year-old green Marine replacement. He joined Fox Company’s 2nd Platoon a few days before the first wave of Chinese troops attacked his listening post at the Toktong Pass during the early months of the Korean War that cold November night half a century ago.

Six hours later, the hulking 6-foot-3-inch Marine was a seasoned “Jarhead” who had survived a number of human wave assaults by the enemy. When daylight came more than 125 Chinese soldiers lay dead in front of his position. He was officially credited with killing 15 of the enemy and wounding many more because they didn’t think those considering him for a commendation would belive one Marine had killed that many Chinamen, according to his company commander.

First Lt. Joseph Owen, one of the members of Baker Company who rescued Fox Company wrote, “Our first view of Fox Hill was from 1,000 yards out. It was an astonishing scene. It stopped our men in silent awe.

“The snow field that led up to Fox Company’s position was covered with bodies of several thousand Chinese soldiers. Many of them seemed to lie in peaceful sleep under blankets of drifted snow. Others had died in anguish, their bodies frozen in forms of pain. There were jumbles of dead men in padded green uniforms.

“Craters of dirt and snow made by 105 millimeter howitzers from Hagaru were filled with bodies and parts of men. Thick bands of Chinese lay at the base of Fox’s perimeter. Most of them had fallen toward the Marines position. They had died as brave men facing the enemy.

“We stood in wonder. Many of us bowed heads in prayer. Some went to their knees. Others breathed quiet oaths of disbelief. Tears came to the eyes of raggedy Marines who had endured bitter cold and savage battle to reach that place of suffering and courage,” Owen wrote.

More armor, bigger engine, bigger gun = bigger ammo = bigger ammo storage, and crew comfort being a design target. Also back then America had to ship these things across a sea and travel across Europe, a reason that America did not field more heavy tanks in WW2 is that most European bridges could not support their weight.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Jacka

On the morning of 7 August 1916, after a night of heavy shelling, the Germans began to overrun a portion of the line which included Jacka's dug-out. Jacka had just completed a reconnaissance, and had gone to his dug-out when two Germans appeared at its entrance and rolled a bomb down the doorway, killing two of his men.Emerging from the dug-out, Jacka came upon a large number of Germans rounding up some forty Australians as prisoners. Only seven men from his platoon had recovered from the blast; rallying these few, he charged at the enemy.Heavy hand-to-hand fighting ensued, as the Australian prisoners turned on their captors. Every member of the platoon was wounded, including Jacka who was wounded seven times; including an injury from a bullet that passed through his body under his right shoulder, and two head wounds.Fifty Germans were captured and the line was retaken;Jacka was personally credited with killing between twelve and twenty Germans during the engagement.

Sure. So there was an American convoy passing through some god forsaken valley in North Korea, and this convoy is fairly substantial, substantial enough to warrant an American Major General to ride along for the trip.

Anyway, they were driving in this deep gullet, and all along the tops of the ridge line, on both sides, North Korean and Chinese troops just started pouring over,completely outnumbering and out maneuvering the Americans. So my Great Uncle's close friend (Marty, I believe) goes to get the Major General to go see what to do, and the General had blown his head off so he wouldn't have gotten tortured for information.

Marty later became an alcoholic and beat his wife on the regular.Fucking Korea man

To be fair, Audie killed/wounded around 50 German soldiers, most of whom probably didn't even know where he was due to the smoke from the burning tank destroyer.
In Fury they come under attack by an SS battalion equipped with panzerfausts but manage to kill at least a hundred soldiers and wound many more

Pacific War was full of insanity like that too

>For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty at Saipan, The Mariana Islands, 19 June to 7 July 1944. When his entire company was held up by fire from automatic weapons and small-arms fire from strongly fortified enemy positions that commanded the view of the company, Sgt. (then Pvt.) Baker voluntarily took a bazooka and dashed alone to within 100 yards of the enemy. Through heavy rifle and machine gun fire that was directed at him by the enemy, he knocked out the strong point, enabling his company to assault the ridge. Some days later while his company advanced across the open field flanked with obstructions and places of concealment for the enemy, Sgt. Baker again voluntarily took up a position in the rear to protect the company against a surprise attack and came upon two heavily fortified enemy pockets manned by two officers and ten enlisted men which had been bypassed. Without regard for such superior numbers, he unhesitatingly attacked and killed all of them. Five hundred yards farther, he discovered six men of the enemy who had concealed themselves behind our lines and destroyed all of them. On 7 July 1944, the perimeter of which Sgt. Baker was a part was attacked from 3 sides by from 3,000 to 5,000 Japanese. During the early stages of this attack, Sgt. Baker was severely wounded, but he insisted on remaining in the line and fired at the enemy at ranges sometimes as close as 5 yards until his ammunition ran out. Without ammunition and with his weapon battered to uselessness from hand-to-hand combat, he was carried about 50 yards to the rear by a comrade, who was then himself wounded. At this point Sgt. Baker refused to be moved any further stating that he preferred to be left to die rather than risk the lives of any more of his friends. A short time later, at his request, he was placed in a sitting position against a small tree.

>>3494919
Another comrade, withdrawing, offered assistance. Sgt. Baker refused, insisting that he be left alone and be given a soldier's pistol with its remaining eight rounds of ammunition. When last seen alive, Sgt. Baker was propped against a tree, pistol in hand, calmly facing the foe. Later Sgt. Baker's body was found in the same position, gun empty, with 8 Japanese lying dead before him. His deeds were in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Army.

Captain Ben L. Salomon was serving at Saipan, in the Marianas Islands on July 7, 1944, as the Surgeon for the 2nd Battalion, 105th Infantry Regiment, 27th Infantry Division. The Regiment’s 1st and 2d Battalions were attacked by an overwhelming force estimated between 3,000 and 5,000 Japanese soldiers. It was one of the largest attacks attempted in the Pacific Theater during World War II. Although both units fought furiously, the enemy soon penetrated the Battalions’ combined perimeter and inflicted overwhelming casualties. In the first minutes of the attack, approximately 30 wounded soldiers walked, crawled, or were carried into Captain Salomon’s aid station, and the small tent soon filled with wounded men. As the perimeter began to be overrun, it became increasingly difficult for Captain Salomon to work on the wounded. He then saw a Japanese soldier bayoneting one of the wounded soldiers lying near the tent. Firing from a squatting position, Captain Salomon quickly killed the enemy soldier. Then, as he turned his attention back to the wounded, two more Japanese soldiers appeared in the front entrance of the tent. As these enemy soldiers were killed, four more crawled under the tent walls. Rushing them, Captain Salomon kicked the knife out of the hand of one, shot another, and bayoneted a third. Captain Salomon butted the fourth enemy soldier in the stomach and a wounded comrade then shot and killed the enemy soldier. Realizing the gravity of the situation, Captain Salomon ordered the wounded to make their way as best they could back to the regimental aid station, while he attempted to hold off the enemy until they were clear.

Captain Salomon then grabbed a rifle from one of the wounded and rushed out of the tent. After four men were killed while manning a machine gun, Captain Salomon took control of it. When his body was later found, 98 dead enemy soldiers were piled in front of his position. Captain Salomon’s extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.

Because people will screech and argue for the rest of eternity how unrealistic it is, its a meme as old as movies itself. When they made a movie about Sgt. York in 1941, the screenwriters toned the York's heroics down because they were afraid no one would believe it.

It is unrealistic though. The germans don't run in column and then lemming rush as their getting shot at. If any your comparison to Audie murphy is disrespectful because he did it in a realistic combat situation against actual trained soldiers, not men marching in napoleonic formations on a road

It was late enough in the conflict that the Boxers had coalesced into a full fighting force backed by Qing "defector" units. Hardly something to scoff at like the resistance Seymour received.

Oh, I assumed this was at the Battle of Peking, which was so one-sided that there was more fighting about how to divide up the booty post-battle.

This guy was one tough motherfucker.
>A huge melee erupts on a Japanese held hill, between Brits stabbing with their bayonets, Gurkas wielding their kukris and Japs and their bayonets/swords.
>In the melee, a Japanese officer hacks off Cairns arm with his katana, who has already been bayonetted twice. Cairns manages to kill the officer, stabbing him multiple times
>He then picks up the fucking katana and goes on a hulk-like, one-armed rampage, hacking and slashing in every direction
>He only stops when he runs out of blood and collapses, at which point the Japanese have been pushed from the hill

Sounds like a case of overcompensating manlet syndrome to me.

Killing 300+ people in an unstoppable carnage is overcompensating?
Or just bad ass as fuck?

A manlet can never be badass because he'll always look silly, no matter what he does. The sooner they learn the better.

So you are saying because you are taller than him you could probably get as many confirmed kills as him?
Maybe even better because of your height advantage?

He's a tiny person who could not even defend himself without a weapon against a real man.

You didn't answer my question.

Yes, I could. There's a reason we don't recruit dwarves for our special forces nowadays.
