    Summary

    While this is a Rat Patrol story, it isn't. It was an experiment that I did about 20 years ago. I took my "Christmas Over Berlin Raid" story and rewrote it with the fan characters turned into original characters.

    Summary

    With permission of a co-author, I'm reprinting something that started as email... and got out of hand fast! The ironic part about this is that when I actually started to write about Jack Moffitt's mother and his home life, she turned into a hard cold woman who didn't love her oldest son very much. Moffitt's was his father's favorite, not his mother's.

    Summary

    I spent six or seven years writing The Rat Patrol fiction for print fanzines. As I have been putting them up on AO3, I decided to put together a list of them which has turned into an internal chronology of the stories.

    When you are writing for that long, you create your own alternate universes for each character. Thus, Jack Moffitt has mother problems. Tully Pettigrew was love with his sister-in-law whose expelled husband (Tully's brother) abused her. Sam Troy comes from Colorado and is an excellent rider. Prep-school boy Mark Hitchcock had a bookish younger sister who writes him letters from home. Their German nemesis, Hauptmann Hans Dietrich, has a mother immensely proud of her handsome son, a wife and child, and tragedy in his life.

    None of the above appeared in the TV series.

    To be able to justify the stories took a lot of research to create believable backgrounds. At one point, I was an expert on the North Africa campaign. That got me a job in 1999.

    It's an honor and pleasure when other people share in it as did my editor, Kathy Agel (a notable writer in her own right) did for "The Last Ride Raid" which shares characters from her own Nexus series (http://contraryrose.com/)
