I quite enjoyed this episode. It was very well written, and the scene between Tina and Ziggy about keeping things “per-son-al” was hilarious. Well done indeed, Mike.

This was a great story. With Tom as the leaper we can go back farther. Having an episode involving the Korean War was a change from Vietnam which is usually the war depicted. An all-around great story. Well done!

The Leap aspect of this was very interesting, Tom having to face the situation of being in battle in Korea combined with his PTSD from Vietnam certainly gave a definite degree of poignancy. Well done for bringing the reader into that situation in a very realistic way. This reviewer was disappointed that Al was very much like his "old self" as opposed to the Albert we've gotten to know in this new timeline, though. It is nice to see things gradually returning to normal.

This is a pretty good story. It mentioned a few times about how determined Tom is to save Sam. Hopefully he does soon. He remembers two conflicting histories, so subconciously he knows that things aren't the way they should be.

Mike, this is an excellent story with many aspects that have been drawn upon before and you make the soldiers real. You must have done your homework on Little Gebraltar. Very well crafted for this very interesting arc. It was a good read.

Finally got to read this story today.

It was an enjoyable read, and like one of the raters, I loved the wrangling with Tina and Ziggy.

I also liked how Tom had to battle the daemons of his past - it was very realistically portrayed.

When Tom diverted the tank into the woods, I couldn't help thinking "I bet that's exactly what Sam would have done!" and it felt right that his brother was handling the leap the way he would.

Well done Mikey.
