I think you both misread my (admittedly, probably poorly made) point. It isn't Arthurian England, but one of the characters, a Twain fan, might make that comparison. You would be unlikely to find a Pournelle or Fortschen fan in a WWII era paratrooper unit.
It's amazing how language can express totally nonsensical concepts, like "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously" or "I liked The Last Airbender movie."
