Memorable quotes

  • None yet.

Other notes

Errors

  • On the splash page, Sierra Gordo's capital is called "Rio Vista" rather than Rio Lindo. (Later in the story, it's called by the right name.)
  • Whoever is piloting the Firebat, it's not an A.V.A.C.. It almost looks like a mis-colored Gyro-Viper.

Items of note

Real-world references

  • The title comes from the first line of a famous speech from Shakespeare's Henry V - or rather, a common misquote thereof (the correct line is "Once more unto the breach, dear friends").
  • Some of the looters are stealing IBM typewriters.
  • On his way out of the embassy, one of the looters, wearing Nikes, steps on a picture of then-president Reagan.
  • In the United Kingdom the story was reprinted in Transformers #282, #283, #284 & #285.
