In this blog, we will discuss aspects of the story–both our fictional account and the facts that stand as the very imposing backdrop for the story.

Wars are full of odd events and coincidences. It was no different on that warm morning in May 1944 when an open window, an errant breeze, and classified plans for the invasion of Europe aligned to create a near disaster. History records that twelve copies of the plans blew out a War Office window and onto Whitehall. Quick action by frantic staffers led to the recovery of eleven of the documents. One copy remained missing long enough to find its way into the hands of an innocent passerby. The missing copy was eventually turned in to a sentry at the Horse Guards, located across from the War Office, by a man with glasses.

In our story, that man is a simple London postman who discovers the document in his mail sack. The question is – “What does he do next?” Should he read it? What will happen if he does? You can read more on the Create Space and Amazon site, or at our site http://www.campana-ditillo.com
