Top Ten Tuesday: In Honor of D-Day
This week's prompt from The Broke and the Bookish is "Top Ten Books From X Genre That I've Recently Added To My TBR List." Because today is the 73rd anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France in 1944, I'm going to list off the Top Ten WWII-Related Books On My TBR List.
Agent Zigzag by Ben Macintyre
American Women and WWII by Doris Weatherford
The Bitter Road to Dachau by Robert L. Wise
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Dear Enemy by Jack Cavanaugh
Lipstick and Lies by Margit Leische
Saving Amelie by Cathy Gohlke
Since You Went Away... Letters to a Soldier from His Wife by Margaret Buell Wilder
Warriors of the Forgotten Front by L. Craig Johnson
With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin
I think that's a nice mix of non-fiction and fiction, don't you? I have about ten more books on my TBR list that deal with WWII, and it was tricky narrowing it down to the ten I most want to read.
I had a great-uncle who hit the beaches at Normandy 73 years ago. Though he's passed away, I'd like to dedicate this post to him, and to all the other brave soldiers who participated in that extraordinary invasion. The world is a better place because of them.
