Change Of Topic

I am good at scenes.

I have one. Alternate history setting, a footnote in its timeline, in 1940 the German advance across the Rhine was resisted by a battalion level force of unprecedented tenacity. The unit was not identifiably French. Much of the scant equipment found after the battle seemed to be of Soviet or Chinese manufacture. Much of it could not be replicated for many years, especially the radios. Who this unit belonged to pales under the question of, "Where did they go after the battle?" This token resistance is what the German High Command used as a reason to dispose Hitler and make peace with England and France. And until excavations in the mid fifties revealed the existence of Chinese manufactured examples of what we now know to be solid state electronic two-way transceivers, it was thought to have been merely a pretense.
