  1. You may want to add Colditz to your list of Britishisms (which I loved, by the way). As a Brit living in the USA, I have found that only Brits understand the Colditz reference. That said, I have to admit that when one of our recently published short stories mentioned Colditz, my tendency was to add a footnote to explain. In the end, I decided against it hoping that American readers might just look it up and educate themselves about WW2!
