AMAZING: "Mad Jack (Churchill)", was a British soldier who fought throughout World War II armed with a longbow, arrows and a Scottish broadsword. He once said "any officer who goes into action without his sword is improperly armed."

The badass in the red circle is "Fighting" Jack Churchill (also known as Mad Jack), a British military captain during WW2 that was famous for using just a basket claymore in battle (though sometimes he also used a longbow). Despite the anachronism, Mad Jack's approach to warfare worked fairly well for him. He once took 42 German soldiers prisoner using only his trademark sword. He's shown here leading his commando unit into Nazi-occupied Norway (if you look, you can see the claymore).
