This particular strip actually is historically accurate. Lieutenant Colonel Jack Churchill did, in fact, single-handedly eliminate a German mortar crew and the nearby patrols by using only his sword and enemy soldiers as human shields. Furthermore, took a number of them prisoner. When he was asked about how he captured so many so easily he responded:
“I maintain that, as long as you tell a German loudly and clearly what to do, if you are senior to him he will cry ‘jawohl’ (yes sir)and get on with it enthusiastically and efficiently whatever the situation.”
Now, back to twisting history to our comedic ends.

PSS: GO U.S.A.! ….and I guess Britain to… and Mexico
