Commander Rostov looked gloomly at the swirling snows to the east. A sip of vodka and a look through his binoculars confirmed the Martians advancing. Alerting his crew and firing a flare to alert his company, Rostov grimly remarks, "lets teach them the basics", as he slammed the hatch - cursing the clumsy British made helmet.
