Apologies, just trying to make a tidy job of it... it does seem incredible that a magical event of this magnitude, that while it was raging would have changed the look of the entire world, did not attract the attention and active participation of the Witches, but nothing has so far been said about this aspect... Even if the later magic of Coin, to restore everything to exactly "as good as old" (with no doubt the History Monks being involved at some point, as this is their trade) left the events of Sourcery as just a hazy half-fogotten dream to most non-magical people, the Witches would not have been so easily fooled; they would remember EXACTLY what happened... apologies if an attempt to make sense of this omission spilled over into speculation.--AgProv 15:41, 14 May 2007 (CEST)

The Lancre Witches, along with the rest of Lancre, were on a fifteen-year sabbatical in other dimensions at the time, and presumably didn't even notice. (Wyrd Sisters)...--Old Dickens 16:23, 14 May 2007 (CEST)

Possibly the absence of the Lancre witches is also the reason witches as a whole didn't involve themselves in the conflict: many of those who weren't on a 15-year hiatus may have opted not to take a stand on the issue, without first knowing Granny Weatherwax's opinion on the subject.

"It is Rommel's good fortune that he led the Afrika Korps, a German army with, uniquely, no SS component"
More than mere good fortune: Rommel made it explicitly clear that he would not have any SS men in Africa. On the other hand, in 1944 in France Rommel, necessarily, had several Waffen-SS divisions reporting to him, and some (notably the 2nd SS "Das Reich") committed atrocities during that period.Solicitr 16:58, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
