    Excellent short story.

    Very atmospheric, and very well-written. My only comment is that I would have liked to have known who fired the bullet and why – was it someone who just wanted to save Ambrose, or take revenge for all the others?

    But apart from that, it’s great. Well done!

      Thanks for your kind comments. In answer to your question, it was a German sniper firing from an enemy position. P.S. I love your user name, it conjures up great images!
