Going Over The Top: CCS on CBS - A tale of Casualty Clearing Stations on the Western Front

#4
That's a great article but there's something a little heartbreaking about being sold so convincingly on a story that doesn't exist.
Yet.

Edit. To be a bit more specific, the Bring Me My Bow series has:

  • A contingent of nurses, one of whom is a central character.
  • At the time of writing, world tensions seem to be developing such that some sort of confrontation might arise. As you'll know from my Great War series of articles, a failure to kick off WWI in 1914 doesn't mean that it won't kick off somewhere else.
  • The story is set in the right period.
  • An author with an inordinate amount of background material on front-line nursing for the period, including several nurses diaries written at the time.
  • An author who seems incapable of writing anything without creating spin-offs.
I've no idea if the story will go in that direction, and if it does, whether I should break it out into a separate book, or interweave the tale with the other bits of the tale.

Interesting that there's a thankful village with a war memorial- I'm aware of 14 that are thankful but don't have one.

And of course there's the Doubly Thankful ones as well.

EDIT: There's got to be a story in Thierville in France not only being the only settlement in France with no casualties during WWI, but also the Franco-Prussian, Algerian, Indochinese Wars and WWII as well.

Upper Slaughter being doubly thankful must be included in that pat historical references thread.
