I will also be DPL on this project.
Would it be possible to reduce the length of the filename. I didn't know whether I could change it in the first post or it needed to be done by an MC. Happy to do it if need be thanks

Ah, another series - always good to be part of those. :wink:
I'm happy to MC this for you. MW will come a bit later.

As for the filename - the first book had kind of a subtitle "Soldiers and Sailors", maybe this one has too? Otherwise we could do with gmfw2 ;-)

The other volumes later on have a subtitle but this one does not. I think we could go with gmfw2 if that's okay many thanks.

Okay, your MW has arrived - thou mayest proceed. :D

I checked the filename for vol. 1 and it was "greatmenfamouswomen1", so maybe we should stick with this one. I always think it's best to use something memorable as much as possible. You can always change the filename yourself in the first post, if I find it totally untenable, I can always change it en masse during cataloging.

Other than that, this looks good to go. :thumbs:
I'll send you a pm about something else "soon". :wink:

Yes this volume is only men. There are some women in the later volumes, which I am going to work my way through, but there are not very many it is very male dominated. :D
