I was all set to write Ch 26. Then I re-read the entire story. Way too many typos, I also got back into thinking the story through more in light of things I had already said, so... I will correct the entire story as well a make the next parts more in-line with part I. A part III is intended.
None of my stories are meant to make light of or minimize history. At least not all of them. WW II and Germany has left wounds that will never heal. I mean no disrespect to any group, race or religion. Well maybe those damn carpetbaggers after the 'War of Northern Aggression' excepted.
