Welcome

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.

I always wanted to be an 'Honorary Co-Founder'!.

Looking forward to receiving plenty of articles and queries from all sources and in particular refugees from what used to be the BBC WW2 Peoples War Website.

With all good wishes

Ron

Let's hope so, but that won't be for a while. Probably later this month we'll go public.

By the way, I've altered the Google coding so that the links open in a separate window.
