Carl Eber is coming back.
We will take up the story of Carl Eber of Jasta 18 on 12 Oktober 1917, where we left off with posting 75 back in March.
I won't be posting every day as I did before, probably three times a week.
Before we continue, however; as there were a number of readers who were confused about this character, I feel I should summarize what we know about him thus far.
So, I'll be introducing the 'DIND Companion.'
It’s a long story and, especially if you don’t live in 1917, it’s easy to get lost. So, in the 'Companion'
I’ve provided some tools to help. I'll add to the' Companion' every time I post so that the main story and the 'Companion' are always together.
In the 'Companion' you will find:1 - A short version of Carl Eber’s backstory. I introduced the back story, mostly in little bites, using flashbacks and dreams to slowly explain the character. Maybe it was less clear than it appeared to me.
2 - A summary of Carl Eber’s personal traits and facts about him.
3 - A glossary of German military terms, slang, and more. I sometimes quit making footnotes on some of these terms after they've been introduced, so this may help.
4 - A cast of the characters, historical and fictional, including ground personnel and pets, with screenshots of their markings and photographs is available.
5 - An index of Spitznamen (nicknames)
It will probably take more than one posting to complete all this, we'll start the story after I'm through boring you with all this rehash.
