    Summary

    The Rat Patrol has a fifth man. (It happens.) He isn't with them most of the time. (So what.) Maybe he is a bit misguided and lost and has a bit of a moral problem right now. (So what.) Is he one of theirs? (Yes.) Will they just let this situation going on and on and do nothing about it? (No.) Did they tell anyone about this little plan of theirs? (Why and for what?)

    ...is there this possibility that this ominous fifth man of theirs is kinda enlisted in the enemy army? (... yeah but why make a big deal out of it?)

    Summary

    For the second Vidding Exercise for Creative Distraction (a.k.a. Vexercise), I chose to focus on motion matching. (I only managed to match a few times, but I'm happy with how it worked out.) [ETA] Well, mostly happy - I've redone the second verse because I felt that some of the clips didn't track well with the lyrics. New! and improved! as of 5/7/21.

    The theme is insubordination. The song is "Senior Service" by Elvis Costello.

    Summary

    Corporal Arnheiter, Hauptmann Dietrich's company clerk, and his best friend Konrad Genscher are taking a little well-earned break from the grind of the Western Desert Campaign. They've been camping away from the main bulk of Dietrich's company to enjoy the natural environment. Arnheiter sketches and paints, they play cards, all is calm and relaxing. Until they are spotted by the Rat Patrol and matters get a bit more exciting than they had planned.

    Summary

    No Christmas because Nazis. Some of the German officers in town forbid Captain Dietrich to celebrate Weihnachten (traditional Christmas eve) with his men. “We can’t spare the supplies, plus we don’t approve of Christian nonsense.”

    The Captain is not one to take "No" for an answer.

    Summary

    An outbreak of contaminated water has everyone falling ill, including Dietrich’s unit, who had resupplied their water from the town a week earlier. Dietrich decides the only thing to do is move the entire town and his own company to a secluded spot deeper in the desert and hope they all survive. Mind you, he hadn't planned on having to move the whole town, but tackled the problem with typical efficiency. And then the Rat Patrol shows up, because God has a sense of humor and just because you are dealing with a plague doesn't mean you can't have another complication added to your plate.

    Summary

    When Captain Dietrich needs to deliver critical medicine to his replacement troops, he decides the only way to get it there safely is by trekking across the desert on his little Arabian mare. Of course, the Rat Patrol figures he'll be easy pickings, him on a horse and them on their jeeps. The race is on!

    The Cross-Country Raid was previously published in Just Deserts 2, 1987, Ann Wortham, editor.
