In LEGOLAND Scale-

About this creation
ALT! UKTUNG HANDS UP! The German soldier upon seeing the face of his captor realises he has forced the surrender of a beautiful young woman. He tries the couple of words of English he knows, but she responds in fluent French, which suits the situation well as he happens to be fluent in the language of Love.
She denounces his army, and his occupation of her land, and explains that she is a nurse helping the Americans and all Allies in the fight. The German soldier who is so very tired of fighting is almost brought to tears by the sheer hatred displayed towards him by the French woman, but he knows he would sooner die than shoot her. The rumbling of Tiger Tank approaches and he knows that the young woman is surley doomed. So tired of the atrocity's he has seen, on both sides, Sgt. Wolfgang Schneider does the unthinkable, and explains to her her only chance of survival is to hide in the back of his troop transport while he drives her out beyond the current battle lines.
Seeing her only other option is to try and run through the already advanced German line, sure suicide, she trepidatiously accepts her enemies offer of rescue, and climbs up into the truck.
Do they make it?

What a quaint little build. The truck looks like it came right out of set sold by LEGO! The background scenery, building and setup gave it just the right touch. The only thing that threw me off at first were the minifigs. I thought the German officer was some playboy in a frumpy suit still reeling from a hangover and the nurse was the German! Don't worry I get what a pain it is not having exactly the right figs and instead using whatever you have to try and set the mood. I wish LEGO had a link on their page where you could order custom minifigs that they would create and sell to the public.
Now for the story portion. Well written. Short and to the point. It works well with the diorama. It sets up a nice cliffhanger scenariofor the next chapter. If I had done this one, the story would have been longer but that's because I like to elaborate on little details to the point it probably annoys most people who care as much as I would.
