Working Title: Children sent away during the Blitz: From YKTTW
das: Might it make sense to expand this trope to cover the (probably) even more massive Soviet evacuation during the war, which was a popular nigh-identical (except darker due to the higher casualties) trope in post-war Soviet literature?
: Go for it. Never knew that about Soviet fiction.
: Aha! I was just thinking the other day that this should be a trope. It fills me with glee to see it existing.
Mattheadface: I know this isn't exactly admin-related, but this trope wouldn't be so limited (or Blessed With Suck as it says on the page) if the writer invented a blitz-equivalent for his/her own fictional world...
