hello, in the story I am writing I am basically winding my characters and plot around what really happned during world war 2. I am using real life as much as possible as an anchor for the crazy stuff that happens and as such am going right in there for historical accuracy. There are a number of events that happened during the blitz which really tie in with the journey's my characters take and I want to tie them in with thes events. NOW Where would I stand in using these real events in my story. I mean in a legal as well as 'decent' sense. From my point of view using events during the Blitz of London would be ok as there were thousands of bombings and deaths... BUT later I want to use a more specfic event which happened in a small town in Wales not far from where I was brought up. Now this is a lot more specific so could perhaps be more problematic. So how far can I or should I use this exact case? Should I use the exact name of the town and the exact date but use different peoples name? (I think this is the most suitable option, but again would this offend the relatives of the people who died by basically 'rewriting' history) Or should I use everything exactly as history tells us? (bit close to the bone maybe?) Or should I make up a name and date but base it on what happened there? Sorry if the answer should be obvious!
