I know we've already had threads about war books, but I've been interested in reading some about WW2 (especially after watching some of Band of Brothers), specifically based in Europe. Thanks

A great book if you want a first hand account (with reflections on the situation) would be to read Rommels "Infantry Attacks" or "Attacks"...one of them is shorterned I have both so just check.

"The Greatest Generation" by Tom Brokaw
"The Cow Spoke French" by William True
"The Forgotten Soldier" by Guy Sajer
"To Fly and Fight" by Bud Anderson

Those are my favorites...Tom Brokaw's being my favorite.

That was great, albeit fiction. Another WWI is "The Greatest Day In History" by Nicholas Best. It's all about 11/11/18. But, most WWII books I've read were very good, so I'll see what I can find.

Ike - Michael Korda (it's about Eisenhower, but deals a lot with WWII and D-Day)

Okay this isn't WWII but Point of Impact is like the greatest book ever. They even made a movie out of it, and the movie still isn't that bad. If you can, read it.

I agree, the Bob Lee Swagger series are perhaps the best books I have read.
