Do you read war stories? Fictional ones? Histories?

My answer: I don't read war stories per se, but I do LOVE stories set during World War I or II, especially in England, and especially love stories and I really like Charlotte Bingham!! I like to read about the people whose lives were affected by the war that were not necessarily the ones fighting. I find it interesting to read about what it is was like for the people "left behind". Actually one of my favourite books as a kid was by Kit Pearson about British kids sent to Canada to be safe during the war. I also like anything to do with the experience of the Jewish people and the Holocaust.

How about you readers?

  1. I used to LOVE those Kit Pearson books! I love books about the homefront during the war. There is a great book out there called the Post-mistress that sort has the same theme. It takes place in the United States and Europe and has two parallel stories, one about a town affected by the war and another about a radio host who is travelling through Europe to try to get a story of what is happening to the Jews in Europe.
