This is my first canon submission to the Chronicles of Man universe. This short story has been in the works for several months and uses features of the Eirangardian assault on Asturia as the framing device. The protagonist, Corporal Rosa Vis, is a rebel fighting against the overwhelming occupation forces present on Asturia. In this story, I attempt to capture intensive and dramatic elements of ground combat using an array of literary devices while making characters compelling and fun to read about. Any and all feedback is welcome!
Special thanks to Josheua for permission to write about historical aspects of nations he has created, in addition to help with refining the story to better reflect canon and better storytelling.
