Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Come to think of it, though I voted for it, Herodotus does not belong on this list.


message 3: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl I got rid of Herodotus. I also deleted Eye of the Needle - even though I voted for it - because it doesn't actually contain any war fighting or battle scenes. Just spying.


message 4: by Lobstergirl (last edited Sep 10, 2011 05:37PM) (new)

Lobstergirl I started the list because I wanted to put When We Were Orphans somewhere, with its scenes from the Second Sino-Japanese War of 1937-1945, but there was no list for general war fiction. Most of the fictional lists are WWII/Holocaust-related.


message 5: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Is History of the Revolt of the Netherlands by Friedrich von Schiller fiction?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I'm pretty sure it's non-fiction history.


message 7: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Wikipedia agrees...I'm going to delete it.


message 8: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Deleted Aimee & Jaguar which is nonfiction.
