Summary: We’ve been fighting this war for a long time. They call us “Muggles.” We know them as wizards and witches.

They struck first. We don’t know where they came from. We don’t know why they attacked us. What we do know is that they were winning. England was the first to fall. Then France. Spain. Italy. It took ten years of tactical withdrawals, delaying actions, and air strikes to halt the wizard's advance. It cost us millions of lives to stop them just short of the Rhine.

Now, it was our turn to push back.

Nice story, well written. It's nice to read a combat story where the author seems to have at least a passing acquaitence with the military. 'Course my familiarty goes back to Viet-Nam. Can you say "Way outdated?" Good job!

Author's Response: Hey, thanks for reading! Most of the military stuff comes from my love of techno-thrillers (Red Storm Rising is a favourite) and films/tv shows like Black Hawk Down/Generation Kill/Future Weapons. It was an interesting challenge fitting all the magic in with the tech, especially coming up with how the wizarding military structure would operate.
