Julie Naked & the Dead listed twice


message 3: by Dr. Michael (new)

 Dr. Michael Galvin Survival In Auschwitz by Primo Levy is not fiction.
Day Of Infamy by Walter Lord is not fiction.


message 4: by Matt (new)

Matt Other non-fiction books are
The Great Escape by Paul Brickhill
The Great Escapes of World War II by Gerge Sullivan
The Great Escape from Stalag Luft III by Tim Carroll
The Longest Tunnel: the true story of World War II's great escape By Alan Burgess


message 5: by Dr. Michael (new)

 Dr. Michael Galvin It would be nice to get those books removed from the fiction list. But I don't know how that is done.


message 6: by Steven (new)

Steven ya know I can't really vote on this one cause I haven't read any of these yet. But they all sound very interesting and history really does fasinate me quite a bit. I saved this huge list in an email folder for later. Since you all have a big list for fiction based during World War 2. How many of you know of anything written that takes place during the Civil War?


message 7: by Dr. Michael (last edited Apr 16, 2010 09:23AM) (new)

 Dr. Michael Galvin Red Badge Of Courage by Stephen Crane
The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara
Last Full Measure by Michael Shaara
Gods And Generals by Jeff Shaara
Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier
The March by E.L. Doctrow

Are these Civil War type books ?


message 9: by Jessica (new)

Jessica There is a Listopia list of Civil War books here: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/60...


message 10: by Steven (new)

Steven Cool, thank you for that link, I saved it so I can check it for when I am ready to read of those types of books.

Matt Anytime Dr. Michael


message 14: by Sara (last edited Sep 11, 2010 12:31PM) (new)

Sara Shakouri I was pretty sure that Night was the non-fictional narrative of Elie Wiesel of his days in Auschwitz, but now that I see 17 people have voted for it as fiction, I'm having doubts...


message 15: by Dr. Michael (new)

 Dr. Michael Galvin Night is a novel but it is based on Wiesel's time in Auschwitz.
However, Ghost Soldiers by Hampton Sides and Great Escapes Of WWII by George Sullivan are non-fiction and should not be on this list.


message 16: by wally (new)

wally sophie's choice? the painted bird? great list!


message 17: by Mary (new)


message 18: by Sharon (new)

Sharon I have read so few of these, I must unconsciously avoid fiction set in this period. I'm going to seek some out now.


message 19: by Madeline (new)

Madeline Just thought I'd mention, Night by Elie Wiesel isn't fictional.. But nice list! I really like reading books set in WW2 and have read a lot of them.


message 20: by Dr. Michael (last edited Jun 13, 2012 06:38AM) (new)

 Dr. Michael Galvin Night isn't fiction but it isn't non fiction either. It is based on Wiesel's time in Auschwitz. Shall we call it non-non fiction? Something like Hemingway's A Moveable Feast. Maybe faction?


message 21: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Gates I agree with others. A few of these books are non fiction. In the Garden of Beasts is. Night I think is classified in libraries as non fiction anyway. I think - not sure. I thought I saw at least a couple of others, but I dont' want to go all through the list again.


message 22: by Dr. Michael (last edited Aug 08, 2012 10:54AM) (new)

 Dr. Michael Galvin Not on the list:
Whistle by James Jones.
Tour Of Duty by John Dos Passos
Harm's Way by James Bassett
The War Lover by John Hersey
A Belll For Adano by John Hersey
The Bridge by Manfred Gregor
The Night In Lisbon by Erich Maria Remarque
