Excellent story about an elite group who answered the call
14 March 2019 | by bob_deckerSee all my reviews

Thud pilots: Alfred Lord Tennyson's The Charge of the Light Brigade could have been written about them.

Was there a man dismayed? Not though the soldier knew Someone had blundered. Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die. Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them, Cannon to left of them, Cannon in front of them Volleyed and thundered; Stormed at with shot and shell, Boldly they rode and well, Into the jaws of Death, Into the mouth of hell Rode the six hundred.
