“The Bulge, for example, was not a place, but a description: it is the description of the line of battle–the MLR, or Main Line of Resistance. Eventually, everything comes down to geometry, to volume and to mass. First there was a line, then there was an attack, and the line bulged, like my wife’s belly while she was carrying our son. A sleek and tender curve, gravid with hope and risk.”

-T.M. McNally
