Collage 478

We have a rule at Team Tolstoy. Actually we have lots of rules. But one of the most important is that we always work together in the studio -- although our far-flung correspondents can work on their own if getting to the studio is not possible. On this day, it was just Emma and I. This is a map that someone sent us -- maybe Otto? I like the gray background against the white. We are on the battlefield in the story at this point. The narrator comments many times during the battle scenes how no one has any idea what's happening. And yet there is so much discussion about strategy. It's kind of hard to make a strategy with little to no information! No unmanned drones during the battle of Borodino. -- Lola
