Today’s post is from Carole at Haggard Library:
Although this war took place more than 70 years ago, it continues to fascinate readers, as well it should. Fought on three continents on land, sea and in the air, it was truly the largest war ever.
Some of my favorite non-fiction titles are:
Once Upon a Town: The Miracle of the North Platte Canteen by Bob Greene
In My Hands: Memories of a Holocaust Rescuer by Irene Opdyke
War in Val D’Orcia, 1943-1944 by Iris Origo
War Brides of World War II by Elfrieda B. Shukert and Barbara S. Scibetta
In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson
Walter Cronkite’s Cronkite’s War: His World War II Letters Home.
Fiction titles I like include:
Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas
A Midnight Clear by William Wharton
A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute
Miracle at St. Anna by James McBride
Land Girls by Angela Huth
These books and many others await your reading pleasure.
