Your descriptions were very good.

I felt the ending was a bit abrupt. I expected there to be more, although I'm not quite sure what. :)

Great job, though. Loved the card from his sister!
Wonderful atmosphere and sense of place. Your descriptions were very vivid. Beautiful. Thank you!
A different and interesting take on this week's topic. Being British I was surprised that we had a reputation in the first world war for trading. Then the Americans had that in the second world war - maybe wrongly too.
This was so real for father used to tell me stories about what it was like growing up in Italy during WWII. Dad would have loved this.
Expertly written. Very nice. :)
Very sweet story with wonderful descriptions. Wonderful job.
