Probably right. Any of the characters involved in the private wars in the Balkans were in a league of their own, most of which we'll never know the full account of. (David Niven was there for a while, I read once he was an accomplished neck slitter, as was Anthony Quayle and also Christopher Lee, possibly the last one still living from them all)
I must apologise to you because I forgot the man who is almost certainly the most nails person who has ever livedLt Gen Sir Adrian Carton de Wiart VC KBE CB CMG DSO
He fought in the Boer War, World War I, and World War II; was shot in the face, head, stomach, ankle, leg, hip and ear; survived a plane crash, tunneled out of a POW camp, and bit off his own fingers when a doctor wouldn't amputate them. He later said "frankly I had enjoyed the war."
After escaping from an Italian POW camp in 1943 - Once de Wiart evaded capture for eight days disguised as an Italian peasant, which is surprising considering that he was in northern Italy, did not speak Italian, and was 61 years old, with an eye patch, one empty sleeve and multiple injuries. Ironically, de Wiart had been approved for repatriation due to his disablement but notification arrived after his escape. As the repatriation would have required that he promise not to take any further part in the war it is probable that he would have declined anyway.
He was later taken to Rome to assist Italian attempts to get out of the war. While having a suit made as part of the cover for what was happening he told Italian tailors to make sure his suit was made properly as he wasn't going to wear one of their 'bloody gigolo suits'.
