War story is a well-written historical fiction offering a different perspective on World War II. The coming of age story includes a nine-year-old New Englander, Achim, a Yale grad student, Paul, a sixteen-year-old female aviatrix who flies warplanes, Liesel, and a Nazi soldier, named Horst. Each character, to their own, has a specific personality and character that meshes well with the other characters.
When an older Achim finds an old diary, memories begin to resurface themselves, and the story starts to tell itself. Each character is given a chapter and this sectioned off each of their personality and backstory really well. I thought the work was organized, and it was apparent to witness the amount of work and care that had gone into the book.
There are many ways where this book could expand into a series. The novel is filled with action, adventure, romance, and humor. I enjoyed the story’s premise, and the pace was steady, allowing everything else to move along, keeping the reader intrigued.
I recommend this book to history and war story fans.Tweet
