What a horrific scenario to be in. Especially when night sets in and you can't see what you're walking into or about to or find yourself in the middle of. I believe that WW2 era soldiers who campaigned in really wild, remote areas of the world saw some things that would really astound us. There are bizarre almost otherworldly stories that came out of locations like Solomon Islands, Guadalcanal even to this day I believe.
I'm sure I read somewhere that many more forces personnel on all sides succumbed to disease, animal and insect ravages than injuries or death from combat or brutal incarceration by the Japanese. The Pacific theatre was often referred to as the 'forgotten war' by embittered veterans here in the UK.

Heard about this maybe ten years ago, and suddenly I want some Arma 3 modder to make saltwater crocs as this could be a nastily enjoyable scenario...in the warm cozy comfort of my home, with a glass of scotch near to hand, and the lights on.

That freakin shark in Crysis scared me more than anything in that game.

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.
