Blog: Little Known Stories of WWII and a Book Award

“Somehow, about half the books that are picked by our book club seem to take place in the WWII era. First it was Boys in the Boat (non-fiction about a rowing team from University of Washington and the 1936 Olympics in Germany). Then we read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society (epistolary historical fiction about the occupation of Guernsey Island) and most recently we read The Girls of Atomic City (nonfiction about a government town in Tennessee whose research and secret work contributed to the making of the atomic bombs that ended WWII). These have all been fascinating reads and what remains with me most, is how the atrocities of WWII reached well beyond Europe and the Pacific to all corners of the earth.”
