It has been a while since my last ‘My Top 5’ post, so I thought it was time to make one! This is my top 5 war books that I have read so far, including non-fiction, and fiction. There are so many war books on my shelves that I am yet to read, but here are the top 5 of the ones that I have.
1 – The Photographer of the Lost by Caroline Scott
The most powerful, and thought-provoking war book I have ever read! FULL REVIEW HERE
2 – The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
Anne Frank’s story is one that I think everyone should read at least once in their life. The struggles and fear that this young girl had to face every day is unimaginable.
3 – The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne
I first read The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas while I was still at school, and to this day, it is one of the most heartbreaking books I have ever read.
4 – War Poems by Wilfred Owen
Wilfred Owens’ war poems are so hard hitting. I’m not a huge poetry fan at all, but these poems are one of the few exceptions. They have a way of sticking in your mind for a very very long time.
5 – The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
This story is incredible. It is based on the life story of a man named Lale Sokolov. This was one of my favourite reads of 2018, and the sequel has recently been released, which I can not wait to read.
