I totally forgot about "All Quiet on the Western Front". That was an excellent book and the movie wasn't to shabby either!

Happy Thursday!

I've read four of these (Catch-22, A Farewell to Arms, Diary of Anne Frank, & Les Miserables)...The Book Thief is on my TBR list. Here's my full answer:

I didn't think of some of these as war stories, but you are right, they are. Good point.

Come visit What Were They Thinking? at The Crowded Leaf.

I only read fictional ones. The White Queen, The Red Queen, and some Civil War books.

I tried reading "For Whom the Bell Tolls" around the same time I read "Homage to Catalonia", but couldn't quite get into it. :-/ I'll revisit it in the future, though.

Great list! I forgot about The Book Thief. I read that one, too.

Veens said...

That's a great list. I hope to read these as well someday.

And for the love of god, don't forget Homer's The Iliad. It may well be the genesis of combat fiction/literature. So much of the ancient Greek drama/poetry has influenced the writing of future generations. Cheers! Chris
