it was ok

Based on the author’s interviews with former members of Hitler Youth, an uneven book about the experience of being young in Germany during World War II. I found it to be a good introduction to the Hitler Youth program, but while many sources are given at the end of the chapters, I would have liked it a lot more if the author had used footnotes throughout. I felt the author often assigned meaning to comments or events without justification, and better documentation would have helped. Audience was definitely young teens, not adults.
