Quandary Resolution 2882
necrology, chlamys, deleterious, leitmotif
Our tour guide pointed to a bronze plaque at the memorial monument, explaining, "here you can see a necrology of all the people who died because they insisted, in the name of tradition and of cultural leitmotif, on wearing a chlamys into battle, an attire perhaps well-suited for their ancestors’ form of warfare but which in the 20th century proved deleterious to their ability to evade enemy machine guns."
