Sacred Cow Time . . . Everyone discusses MG34/42 but what about the Allies' dependable friends, the Bren and BAR? On paper, they look pretty close, except for the BAR's rather measly 20-round magazine. I've often wondered about this - which one was best ? I'll kick off by going for the Bren on patriotic grounds - in trained hands, it was ultra-reliable and could be devastating ; as used by the Airborne forces at Arnhem/Oosterbeek, for instance.
