General: He alone rode a tank and held a bearded rank, in the only SF tank – Military legends

The legend of this one-of-a-kind incident deemed the Special Forces tank is not rooted in World War Two, but I can’t help but make the comparison to pictured fictional [assumed,] tank commander. Sergeant Oddball, from one of the greatest military movies of all time, Kelly’s Heroes wherein the personality of a man who in the face of danger will shout, “Crazy! I mean like so many positive waves maybe we can’t lose! You’re on!” This is the personality of the man in this legend, but our guy is entirely more independent whilst demonstrating a very similar set of characteristics to Oddball. Yet they both share the core traits that are required of the kind of wild man who could leave such a known-unknown mark upon military history.
