just under 2,000 words written for this... now to sit on it for a while, before rereading it. Not sure about the title, that seems to be my worst point. "know thine enemy" seems to fit a story about mistaking organised men for  a drunken rabble with distasterous consequences..

Oooh interesting. I haven't written anything in ages and Lee is on at me to get writing something. Maybe this is the perfect opportunity.
