All, Taking advice from one of the other contributors on this site, I began to read Guy de Maupassant's work. Some of his stories are set in France during the war between France and Prussia. One Story called the "Two Friends" tells of two friends who leave the safety of Paris, whilst it is being attacked by the Prussian troops. The friends want to go fishing in the river like the old days. They are captured by the Prussian army and killed. If I take this idea and transfer it to modern times and set it in South Sudan for example and change the context from fishing to visiting a wife's grave, would I be accused of plagiarism?
