That was my favorite crossover scene of this story.  But I liked the 
entire story, even the failures of Our Heroes.  Unlike certain TV 
episodes, this isn't just a failure story.  It's more like real life, 
wherein some things work and some things don't.

Well done.

The soldiers presented a pathetic but inspiring spectacle. The
hospitals were crowded with sick and wounded; the walls were
gradually crumbling under incessant shell fire, yet that garrison
of heroes remained undaunted.

It was as Buck said, "just as if they had been Americans."
