Lest We Forget: Some Books To Read On Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

Last year, I drafted a post of Remembrance Day book reviews, but never published it, for some reason that escapes me now. However, since today is the centenary of the end of WW1, I thought I might dig it out, dust it off and publish it today.

Not all of these books deal with the First World War, but they all deal with war in one form or another, and they are all well-written, engaging and heartbreaking, whether they are about WW1 or WW2.

Before we start, I just want to mention that yesterday I did a guest post for Audrey Caylin on the importance of hope and you really should go have a look, and check out Audrey’s blog as well, because it’s amazing (and she’s amazing too). Continue reading
