The other day, as I was looking for a good book for our next WWI American History Club meeting (never did find one, even if I did choose When Christmas Comes Again), I lamented the lack of good WWI books. I’ve read a lot about WWII, but very little about WWI. While I was hoping to get some suggestions for kids books about WWI, my friends instead filled my reading list with books for me to read about WWI. Here’s what I’ve added to my list because of that thread (titles only because there are so many):
Fall of Giants: Book One of the Century Trilogy by Ken Follett. Looks like if I like that one, I’ll have two more to read. I’ve read Follett and enjoyed him in the past, so I’m not worried about quality.
All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Remarque has been on my radar for a while, but I’m putting officially on the list now.
Finally, a nonfiction book to close out the reading list: The Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman. It even won a Pulitzer (for nonfiction, but I still count it for my reading challenge).
Anything else I should add to my reading list?
