Secrets, Spies and Sacrifice: 11 Captivating Novels About World War II
By Chris Delaney Off the Shelf. There are many sides in a war -- and many stories to tell. As we remember the terrible events of December 7, , these eleven novels remind us that the war affected so many people in so many different ways. City of Thieves by David Benioff During the Nazi siege of Leningrad, two convicted prisoners set out to collect a dozen eggs for a powerful Soviet colonel's daughter's wedding cake -- or face the firing squad. This smart, intimate story about courage and survival is compelling and full of heart.
Novels about World War 2: Realistic focus
History is filled with fascinating stories of World War II spies. Beyond double agents like Eddie Chapman or American hero Virginia Hall , even celebrities were in on the action. Julia Child—of the perfect boeuf bourguignon— applied her culinary expertise to her work with OSS, and Roald Dahl—the man behind Charlie and the Chocolate Factory — was a bonafide secret agent. What connects them all, however, is a rare brand of intelligence, cunning, and guts. The spies in the seven novels below have these qualities in spades.
