The Second World War is known to be dominated by modern technology such as machine guns and artillery fire. However, there is one man who pushed those aside and donned a basket-hilted sword, longbow and bagpipes to attack the enemy. Lieutenant Colonel Jack 'Mad Jack' Churchill, a soldier for the British Army was originally an actor before the war started. When the war began, he enlisted and soon became known as a 'madman' who deemed modern technology as unnecessary and opted for something out of a Napoleonic era. His motto "Any officer who goes into action without his sword is improperly dressed." was viewed as outlandish in a time where artillery, tanks and machine guns won battles. However, he was able to prove otherwise. Known as the only man in WWII to have felled an enemy by longbow, Mad Jack honoured his namesake. In Operation Archery, a raid on a Nazi garrison in Norway, Churchill was on the first landing craft. As the doors fell, he kept forward onto the field, playing 'March of the Cameron Men' on his bagpipes as he threw a grenade and vanished from sight. He quickly dotted the area with men who were too unfortunate to pass by him. The effect of this raid was enough to persuade Hitler to divert most of his troops to Norway, leading to many successful POW camp raids in Southern Europe. Throughout his career, he was captured while playing his bagpipes, knocked unconscious by explosions and even sent to a concentration camp, only to escape shortly after and then walk 150km to Verona, Italy to join the fight once again. Churchill left his mark on history, not only through his courageous actions, but with his words, noting that after the war ended, he stated "If it wasn't for those damn Yanks, we could have kept the war going another 10 years.".
