“URAH!” The Russians broke order and charged. Luc fired into the advancing mass, sending a conscript down, but before he could chamber another, they were engaged in melee. A small man, covered in grime, and bearing a wicked sword went for Luc, and he blocked with the barrel of his gun, before bringing the butt up into the fellow’s face. The battle had degenerated into a swirling knot at the bottom of the hill. Luc watched the Prussian officer heroically pick off approaching soldiers with his pistol, before disappearing behind the counter-attacking Russians....

We hope you enjoy reading his work as much as we did: Francis stepped onto the bridge of the HMS Deliverer and instantly felt like the outsider, his scarlet red coat contrasting starkly against the deep blue of the other officers present.

Volker swung the bomber drunkenly side to side, and when the fighters matched his rhythm, he sent the plane into another steep dive, but the Brits were tenacious and kept on his six. With Maxwell spraying bullets at the trailing fighters, Volker grabbed the radio and hailed the nearest zeppelin. “Attention Ehre, this is Captain Becker. We’re having a bit of trouble out here, think you can help?” “Absolutely.” The zeppelin Commander replied, “ We’ve been watching your very entertaining acrobatic displays, but we understand you might want a break.
