This week's topic is "Brigade", suggested by Cyndee (http://www.cbarberstudio.com)
Today I visited the ruins of Kjøkøy fort which was made by the Germans in 1941 to protect the port of Fredrikstad. Brigade is an Italian word brigata which means fight. The soldiers were mostly ordinary young boys who were commanded into battle, and I think they often disliked the situation being in a fight. They were all afraid of being killed by the enemy just like the soldiers of the Allied troops, and their mothers on both sides had no good nights' sleep during the last world war. As mothers of all time!
