November 28, 2011: When Buying A Flatscreen TV, Bring Paratroopers
Thermal underwear, flasks of hot coffee, and comfortable shoes -- all good tools that other folks used to prep themselves for the Black Friday sales. However, I had something that really helped make a difference: highly trained WWII commandos.
The new e23 release of GURPS WWII Classic: Hand of Steel gave me something awesome to peruse on my iPad while I waited in line. Written by S.A. Fisher (co-author of GURPS Loadouts: Monster Hunters), this supplement covers all manner of special forces in WWII: an overview of who they are, what they did, their gear and guns, and more.
So if you are looking for something cool to read this holiday season, consider GURPS WWII Classic: Hand of Steel -- which does not have any relationship with the recently released GURPS Reign of Steel: Will to Live. (Although, now that I type those two supplements right next to each other, I'm getting ideas. WWII special forces against killer robots? Hmmm . . .)
