Trenches (stories from Gangrene Street)

Written by

Welcome to Gangrene Street, a scenic trench at the Western Front commanding a majestic view of Hill 35, a typical place to spend the Great War in.

The “dwellers” of Gangrene Street live in constant agitation. Military exercises, attacks, reports, chores… They soon realize things worse than the enemy can be found in the trenches: mud, mice, sergeants and… poetry. When the time comes for the 8th consecutive assault on Hill 35, in seems more like a relief!
