    Nice! I do enjoy historical A to Z themes. As an archaeologist, WWII is not really my home turf, but I have been reading more about it lately, mostly in relation to American troops in Rome. I look forward to your posts!

    That was a very interesting time in world history with WW2. My mom was in her 20s during that time and shared stories of rationing. My dad was a prisoner of war for the Polish army and in a prison camp run by the Germans. My father in law served in the Navy during WW2. My dad died young so I really didn’t know him (he emigrated to America after the war and met my mom) but I did hear stories from my mom and father in law about that time. Very fascinating time indeed! Good luck with the challenge!
