ideas for a novel?
Posted 31 May 2010 - 04:29 PM
i've got a couple of ideas- tell me what u think
1) the life of a disgraced red army officer in a penal battalion having to deal with the guilt of deserting his men (the reason he was placed in the penal unit.) One thing though: his memory of the battle is blank, so he doesn't know if he actually did desert them
Main themes: caught between two totalatarian monsters, where does his loyalties lie?
2) a german teenager from an upper-middle class prussian family conscripted into the volksturm and thrown against the rampaging Red Army.
Main themes: hopelessness, loss of youth, coming to terms with the fact his country brought it upon them
but nothings set in stone so if you have any ideas (pref. eastern front themed but doesnt have to be) throw them my way!
