Reading List

Below please find the articles and books for upcoming WWII Book Club meetings.

Given the one book a month approach, not all the "great books" about WWII will be reviewed.  Many are identified on one or more of the "reading lists" previously published.  New books come out all the time and some older books did not make one of the earlier lists.  So each month or two a book, not necessarily on the topic, will be added to the Supplemental List

See this about acquiring a copy of the book(s) below or on any of our lists
