    Maple Leaf Against the Axis by David J. Bercuson is a good read on Canadas overall involvement in the war... "overall" because it doesn't get very specific on individual battles - it covers the basics of Canadas war on land, in the air and at sea.

    I've got Parachute Infantry and it's next on my read list.

    Hi all!

    These are some great reading! I'll be busy for months! I've got a list or two, but do online books count? The CMH has some great stuff! Here's a link to one of them:

    Found this one on Google books. Weighty, but important for the backstory:

    Just finished "Killing Rommel" by Steven Pressfield. About the war in North Africa, excellent! Also try "War of the Rats" by David L. Robbins which is about the sniper war waged in Stalingrad. Both are fact based fiction works and great reads. "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" should be required reading for this site!

    One of my favorite books is: "Soldier of Orange" by Erik Hazelhoff Roelfzema, in English or in the original Dutch language. (I had the honor to meet Mr. R. once on an airplane traveling to Amsterdam).

    Another favorite book is the earlier mentioned "The Big Show" by Pierre Clostermann. It was the first pocket book (used) I bought in the US back in 1960 for the grand sum of 10 cents! I still have it, but it is now barely legible. During WWII from, Sep 19 1944 until Feb 25 1945, we were evacuated to a little town called Beers (rhymes with bails) which is approxiamately 10 miles from the German built airbase Volkel in the southern part of the Netherlands. P.C. was based there for some time, and I am sure that he was one of the pilots of the many "Tempests" that came screaming over! One of the pictures in the book was taken at Volkel and that was the reason I originally bought it.

    Something else entirely:

    Little Girl lost (An der Hand meiner Schwester. Zwei Mädchen im Kriegszerstörten Deutschland) by Barbie (Bärbel) Probert-Wright

    In 1945, seven-year-old Barbie and her sister Eva were trapped, terrified, in war-torn Germany. With their father missing, and hundreds of miles from their mother, news of the approaching army left them confronted with an impossible choice: to face invasion, or to flee on foot. Eva, aged 19, was determined to find her mother. For Barbie, 12 years younger, the journey was to be more perilous but, spurred on by her sister’s courage and her desperate desire to be reunited with her mother, she joined Eva on a journey no child should ever have to endure. Over three hundred miles across a country ravaged by a terrible war, they encountered unimaginable hardship, extraordinary courage and overwhelming generosity. Against all the odds, they survived. But neither sister came out of the journey unscathed.
    This book doesn't provide you with politics or a story of the war with details of events, it shows another point of view.

    I Was There................is the name of a book involving the day to day tribulations involving the Hitler Youth during WW-2. It is enjoyable and easy reading about the kids drama that unfolds as they go from school friends to Hitler Youth comrads, and the over use of their power to degrade one another....it is a sad story but brings together the view of how it was being brought up in Germany during WW-2....The book relates to stories my parents use to tell me, when my dad was in the Hitler Youth....basically you had to join...there was no such thing as saying No...and unfortunately, at the time, it made your parents proud to be in the Hitler Youth...

    War without Garland,operation Barbarossa 1941/42 by Robert Kershaw.
    Barbarossa viewed by soldiers on both sides(more German though) with lots of letters/diaries of the time and several interviews.Nearly finished it and really impressed by the style and way the author tries to put you in the shoes of the poor infantry guy or the tank gunner.

    Tank ’40 Hours of battle by Ken Tout: tells the story of his exploits as a Sherman tank crewman during the first 40 hours of Operation Totalize during the Normandy campaign. This is probably the best tank warfare book you are ever likely to read.
    Ken Tout was in C troop 1st Northamptonshire Yeomanry, the same unit that (May have)Destroyed Wittmanns Tiger. (Joe Ekins may well have done the job)
    Also by Ken Tout is Tanks Advance, which goes into his exploits from England, landing in Normandy, and on to his getting injured in Holland.

    The forgotten soldier by Guy Sajer: A 'MUST READ' book about life & death on the Eastern front.
