A Wednesday Wishlist: War

Me and my WWII obsession again. 🙂 There are so many great books out there, both fiction and non-fiction. I usually prefer the non-fiction WWII books,  but as you can see here there are some great fiction choices that cannot be passed up. I also added in a modern day war story because the story really intrigues me and it is very highly rated.

Here is my current wishlist of war literature:

American Sniper by Chris Kyle
From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. His fellow American warriors, whom he protected with deadly precision from rooftops and stealth positions during the Iraq War, called him “The Legend”; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, writes honestly about the pain of war—including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

“The Nazi Officer’s Wife” Edith H. Beer
Edith Hahn was an outspoken young woman in Vienna when the Gestapo forced her into a ghetto and then into a labor camp. When she returned home months later, she knew she would become a hunted woman and went underground. With the help of a Christian friend, she emerged in Munich as Grete Denner. There she met Werner Vetter, a Nazi Party member who fell in love with her. Despite Edith’s protests and even her eventual confession that she was Jewish, he married her and kept her identity a secret.
Rated: 4.6 on amazon.com

Each of these  books is extremely well reviewed, and sound like great stories that I will love. Also together they make a versatile montage, which keeps it interesting. Now I just need more free time so I can start checking some of these off my list!

Do you have any WWII books that you can’t wait to get your hands on?
