    Setting the scene years apart

    I want to start a story with a short scene set 70 years before the main events and located in a particular locale. I'm considering a short line listing date and time under the paragraph break (ie: Stalingrad 1942) Does this seem reasonable? thanks,

    Sounds really cool, actually. I like that kind of thing. I'm the kind of person that likes backstory out of no where that leads up to or provides that extra kick in the current situation.
