it was ok

A German boy's memoir of the six year period ending World War II. Some stories Samuel tells are filled with horror and hunger as he and his family struggle for survival. For those parts of the book, I give four stars. However, Samuel includes so remembrances that matter so very little to the story. I skimmed fast stretches of his personal wilderness. He did impress upon me the difference between living under the Russians and under the Americans, making me feel proud to be the latter.
