The Loved and Were Loved

The Loved and Were Loved

A collection of stories that attempts to show the various ways war impacted romantic relationships. The name for the community comes from John McCrae's poem, In Flanders Fields, but the grouping here includes unions broken by the war as well as those that lasted well beyond it.
