Misleading Title

     Someone, Ambrose-connected, wrote a book called "The Longest Winter."  The topic is the Battle of the Bulge.  Most people might think a book with that title might concern Napoleon's famous invasion of Russia.  More knowledgable people would have assumed it concerned the Battle of Poltova.

     On a personal note, a soldier or officer of the army of Charles XII captured by Peter the Great was named Narin.  He was sent to work in the mines.
