A Large Handful of Novels About World War II
a book list by Peter, the avid reader who runs Flashlight Worthy
American authors wrote a surprising number of excellent books about World War II, more so than any war before or after. There was something about the war that attracted writers: maybe because World War II was the largest conflict the world had seen, or the fact that 50 million lost their lives.
Whatever the reason, I've listed a handful of fantastic war novels below. (And due to the sheer volume of excellent World War II books, I'm sure I missed some must-read titles, so if you know of any war books I should include, let me know.)
