Would that be Empress Maud? If so, where I join you?
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

On Guadalcanal, fighting Japs. (After finally watching all of The Pacific mini-series, I bought a few of the memoirs the series was based on and wishlisted a few more.)

I'm going to sound INCREDIBLY daft right now, but when I first saw the title of this thread, I assumed it literally meant 'Where are you?' as in, whereabouts in the world, and then I saw what some of you were saying and realised it must of course mean whereabouts in the book you are currently reading! Hahaha. Oh dear. :o

Apologies for my silliness, I'm just getting re-acquainted with this forum after a long abscence! (2 and a bit years!)

I am currently on a farm in England with a gruff farmowner, his wife, and their newly-arrived Land Girls during the Second World War
Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

It's 1985 and I've just started university. I'm still at that really awkward growing-up stage and everything that comes out of my mouth is just so embarrassing :(
(Obviously not a HF book this time)

I'm in Devon in 1815, having just time-travelled from 2013. I'm feeling a little dizzy! I'm on a mission - to stop certain people messing with time and the future.
