Re: EpDis: GROPOS

What I liked most about this EP, was that war, instead of being portrayed as brave and glorious, was portrayed as ill-conceived, brutal, and deadly.

I also liked the Garibaldi-Dodger thing for its interesting role reversal. It's usually the guy going off to war, not knowing if he will ever make it back, who expects sex from a woman, due to his situation. And, in the movies, he usually gets it, even in WWII era films! This was a total reversal. I think Garibaldi was a jerk to wimp out as he did, under the circumstances. Dodger was right - it was supposed to be uncomplicated, and not a continuing relationship, so Mr. G's baggage had no place there.
