I have read several World War II memoirs, Camp survivor memoirs, and several World War II nonfiction. This piece provided an interesting view of soldiers fighting a personal war with the Nazis. I almost bailed but I am glad I stuck this one out. No matter how many pieces I read in WWII, I'm always surprised at the sheer horror of this time in history.

A book about true WW11 heroes seems like a perfect read in today's climate.@williammorrowbooks

Don't worry- I'm not reading while I'm driving. I'm waiting to pick up my daughters from cross country practice. I'm not minding the wait a bit. Just started this book - excellent narrative non-fiction about the Ritchie Boys of WWII

History buffs - SONS AND SOLDIERS by Bruce Henderson is a powerful and riveting tale of heroism in World War II. This book tells the story of the little-known saga of young German Jews who fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s, came of age in America, and returned to Europe as members of the U.S. Army to play a key role in the Allied victory. It goes on sale 7/25! #history #worldwarii

Cinfhen Hi suzze! Haven't seen your posts in weeks & was just wondering about you! Hope all is well 💗 (edited) 3y
Suzze @Cinfhen Thanks. I have been in a horrible reading slump. Haven't finished a book in 6 weeks. Every time I come here I just get depressed about not reading. My sister will be here in a week, (for almost 2 months) and we read together constantly, so I'm hoping that jumpstarts me back into reading more! 💜💜💜 3y
Cinfhen Sister time sounds great! Enjoy 😊 hope her visit jumpstarts your reading 💕💕 3y

I don't often read non fiction at the rate I read this book, but I hated so much to put it down. There is so much overlooked in history courses of our own history, and this book helped fill in at least a few of the gaps. A must read for sure.

Got some reading done at a wedding my husband officiated- the reception was mostly alcohol and two step, so I found a semi quiet table lol #nonfiction #ritchieboys

Reading Sons and Soldiers while the kids burn off the sugar rush (they asked to make s'mores- couldn't refuse lol) then for their bedtime story I am reading Ivy and the Lonely Raincloud by Katie Harnett- it's an ARC I got today, and they love reading these with me.
