| SanglanteAlouette chapter 26 . 8/27
Great story ! It's interesting to take the squibs into consideration, and building the story around the ways the magical society works adds a lot. And using muggle weapons makes a lot of sense, I always found it strange that neither Harry nor Hermione (or any other muggleborn) thought of it. Except that even if Voldemort disdain their use, he should nonetheless understand what's going on and have a sligh understanding of what firearms can do...

I have been enjoying this story a lot, and it just occurred to me it would be fun if McConigal decided (after a huge row with Dumbledore) to reactive her 40's rank as a Spy Mistress and be Major Potters eyes in the Orde...

I just came across this story. I love it. It's so friggin awesome, to see Harry get an actual army, a real Regiment together to fight Voldieshorts.
Your weapons choices were great. Too often these days we have wished for heavier calibre rifles, and a stronger emphasis on marksmanship, and proper bayonet training. As well, having the Webley and Royal Irish as sidearm's was very smart, not a lot of thought is put into such a thing nowadays.
The focusing on carrying heavier weapons bit I loved, because all it takes is training stylized around your gear, weapons, and goal to make a physically strong and fit soldier.
Choosing the KG, was a spectacular idea, as we still have that beautiful baby in service! It is a wonderful, and solid recoiless rifle.
Including everyone from across the Empire was beautiful, I loved that you had "The Devils Brigade" included! That made me a very happy Canucklehead. And with the ANZAC's, the Zealanders(that Haka was epic), the Black Watch Highlanders, and the Gurkhas, this made for an extremely nostalgic British Empire story. Spectacular, absolutely spectacular...
I loved the way you even sorta included MI6, or whoever "Grey Suit" was... Interesting choice of words, considering the fact that a "grey man" is not typically noticed and is able to do a good enough job to fit into a section...
Ah, so Harry earns his stripes, goes off to the larger world. I wonder, did he serve in the Balkans, in Bosnia, Serbia, and Herzegovina? But that Afghanistan scene was funny as all hel!
What a great story. I would love to see more of these adventures of officer Harry Potter of the 95th Rifle Regiment!
