My stories

The Second World War: PART 10 - Otto Krause - Nuremberg (1946) #2

It was blisteringly cold on the morning of October sixteenth in the south-eastern state of Bavaria.

The Second World War: PART 9 - Roger Farrier - Paris (1944) #2

The smashed mirror of water became whole when the unshaven face emerged from it.

The Second World War: PART 8 - Andrew MacDonald - Sagan/ Fussen (1944) #2

There are two parts to this, I have written them both and can't decide which is better: to show BEFORE or AFTER the Great Escape. Which is more engaging to read?

The Second World War: PART 7 - Roger Farrier - Paris (1944) #2

Roger Farrier crossed the landing, unlocked the door marked 16A and stepped inside, twisting the lock behind him in the same movement.
