Johnny Hopper and His War Against The Germans

Post by JimT »

I first read of this remarkable Englishman in SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE - September 1993 Issue.

This article is fairly long and VERY worth the read!

Thanks for posting that Jim, I remember hearing about Johnny Hopper a long time ago, quite a guy.
If more men loved and cherished their wives as much as I love bacon the world would be a much better place.

His story would make a great movie. That was a good read.

Dang -- my PC's anti-malware system blocked that site...

Would have loved to read it -- and I hope the block was wrong (but watch your systems for the next few days!).
