Welcome to a new venture! This blog was formed by a group of us who met on the BBC website WW2 - People's War. To our surprise we learnt in late 2005 that the site was to close down on 31 January 2006, and as I write this the clock is ticking away.
For the moment this site is confined to Members Only, but after we have solved the inevitable teething troubles I suggest that we throw it open to the public and invite them to submit stories. So how will it differ from the BBC's site? Well, for a start, we shall be in control and whilst we shall defend free speech and constructive argument (Frank and I on history, and no doubt Tom and me on the merits/demerits of Montgomery :) ) any stories which are clearly bogus will not be accepted.
So who will decide this! I suggest that the sole Monitors are Ron, Frank, Tom, and myself. If three are against and one in favour, the story will stand subject to discussion and review. After a full review a majority decision will decide. Any stories gaining a 50:50 backing will be accepted.
