This is a great WWII era book that is based upon true accounts. Unfortunately, the story just fell flat for me. I know that the things that happen in the book really happened, but I wish the characters were better developed. I wasn't emotionally attached to them and I couldn't picture them as living, breathing human beings with feelings and emotions. I think that in order to truly understand their plight, you have to care about them and it was hard for me to do that because it seemed like they didn't feel or have emotions. Overall, the book did give a decent introduction to what happened during WWII, primarily in Poland.
