‘World War II’ dedicated novels

Many books were written on World War II. Most of them were fiction and some were somewhat real. I have read 3 novels related to WWII so far.

1. All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. This book follows two lives struggling during the World War II. Marie-Laure a blind French girl and her father live in Paris in France ,where her father works for the Museum of Natural History. When she is 12 years of age they flee from the Nazis but it so happens that they are carrying a treasure which is most valuable and dangerous. While Werner Pfennig an orphan boy and his younger sister grow up in Germany. Werner with a knack for fixing old radios and getting to know about places they never imagined. He becomes an expert in fixing these instruments and is taken to Hitler Youth. At a point there lives are entwined. It is an expertly written book.

2. The Diary Of A Young Girl by Anne Frank. This book contains the diary entries of ‘Annelies Marie’ Anne Frank. A Jewish German, who had to go in hiding with her family during World War II. They were joined by the Van Pels and Fritz Pfeffer. They faced many problems like hygiene, food, space, fights etc. It teaches us about courage, hope, postivity, sharing of happiness and love and always being full of curiosity. Everyone should read this book cause’ it teaches us to appreciate all the things we have.

3.The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This is a passionately written book. The storyteller in this book is Death. It has been so busy lately because there’s a war going on…..World War. The story is about Liesel a girl who watches her younger brother die during their journey to their foster parents house….Near her brother’s grave she finds a book. It is ‘The Gravedigger’s Handbook’ , and so starts her voyage of book thievery. Liesel learns to read with her foster father and goes on to steal more books. But then it becomes dangerous because Liesel’s parents are hiding a Jew in their house. It is a roller coaster of feelings and experiences. There is a heart and soul in this book.

These are the books that I have read on World War II. I hope you like them all. Please let me know the books you have read on WW-II.
