General Pettygree proudly presents "Back To The Bridge," the final chapter of his three-chapter short story, BRACE UP!, here:


Crowded with action in a desperate mountain trail retreat, Lt. Arthur's men are relentlessly pursued by enraged and nimble foes.

Vicariously join them within briefly captioned photos. Feel the excitement and fast-paced suspense as enemies collide under a full moon. Each needs a miracle.

Respectfully yours,

Hi Joe, Herb, Prisco and Mad Guru,
The time you took to write your electronic sentiments is greatly appreciated by me. I had a lot of creative fun/satisfaction with this final chapter and am gratified you enjoyed the story.

Photos in the moonlight, suspense and dialogue from people resonates to make it significantly different and hopefully more entertaining

Thank you very much,

The story shows historical miniatures in a story with personalities. The latter tell the events of their desperate Allied retreat or fast-paced Axis pursuit by dialogue. Somewhat like a motion picture with non-moving images. The entire story was photographed in night scenes illuminated by a full moon. 28mm.
Surprise ending too,
For those who did not actually go to the story by the link above, give it a try for something different.
