message 2: by Julie (new)

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.

Those are all civil war novels

 Dr. Michael Galvin Thanks Matt


message 13: by Matt (new)

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 Mary (new)


message 17: 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 18: 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 19: 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 20: by Nicky (new)

Nicky 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 21: 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


message 22: by Fred (new)

Fred Did I miss Ship of Fools and Castle Keep?


message 23: by ☯Bettie☯ (last edited Jan 10, 2013 02:11PM) (new)

☯Bettie☯ Flashman in WWII!?
#305


TheGirlWhoLivedUpstairs Stormbringer (Apocalypse Then) by Daniel DeLacy The Boulevard of Broken Dreams (Apocalypse Then, #2) by Daniel DeLacyby Daniel DeLacy

New World War II fiction written from a fresh perspective by a new author. Both books available on Kindle and part of the 'Apocalypse Now' series. Go and check them out.Stormbringer The Boulevard of Broken Dreams


message 25: by Kate (new)

Kate Diary of a Young Girl, while iconic in the Holocaust/WWII narrative canon, is not fiction - I've removed it.


message 26: by Mary (new)

Mary A lot of books here are not fiction -- perhaps the title of the list should be revised? And how is Silence of the Lambs about WWII?


message 27: by Joy (new)

Joy Many non-fiction books, but, as for fiction, WAR TRASH is about the Korean war and THE LEOPARD is set in the 19th century.


message 28: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Totally agree with the Book Thief--possibly my favorite book ever. I just wish The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas was up higher.


message 29: by T (new)

T Moore I cannot believe, I missed seeing "The Kindly Ones" - Littel. on the first page. You want Hitler's war? Here it is stripped naked with no holds barred and beyond.

It is as well written as "The Tin Drum" or "Gravity's Rainbow". But, it is all about the war.

There is no other World War 2 novel that comes anywhere close to it in terms of the twisted mindset that underpinned the War in Europe.
