message 1: by Rachel (new)

Rachel The Diary of a Young Girl and The Hiding Place are definitely tops.


message 2: by Ned (new)

Ned Peneguy "Ordinary Men" and Beevor's "Stalingrad" are definitely not first hand accounts. Shirer's "Rise and Fall" kind of counts because he was present as a reporter during Hitler's rise to power, but it's a stretch.


message 3: by Jayvee (new)

Jayvee doesn't matter to me, this is a good list for me with regards to finding good WW2 reads.


message 4: by Ashie Hettige (new)

Ashie Hettige Thank you soo soo much for the list. I'm a huge WWII fan and I guess I've got plenty of books to read about... :)!!!


message 5: by Anna (new)

Anna Kļaviņa Deleted The Boy in the Striped Pajamas it is not first hand account and more importantly it is fiction.


message 6: by Medha (new)

Medha Kanwar I need your help guys. I am trying find a book and I don't remember either the title or the author's name. It is a really old book about a soldier who dragged himself with injured leg . And its a world war survivor story.
I would really appreciate your help.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Have you tried the group "what's the name of this book?"


message 8: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly I'm pretty sure Pride & Prejudice (~121) isn't WW2... great list, though!


message 9: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Jun 18, 2015 08:57AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I'll just nab that, Kimberly - thanks for mentioning it.

ETA: Also removing Jackboot Britain, as that is a novel and this list is for non-fiction.
