What are some good books about WWII? I'm interested in the subject. Stuff about the Axis powers is particularly interesting.

this is a good question, all i can think of that i've read that was remotely relevant to ww2 was catch-22, but i doubt that's what you want. i wouldnt mind reading literature about ww2, but you know, thinking about it, that was a period in which literature lost a lot of meaning, not much after the 1950s is worth reading. that's just my opinion, but it's hard not to notice the significant dip in skill after that war. it was as if the innocence of art was no more and humanity suddenly became adult, sarcastic, cynical, and crude.

Currently reading, pic related.

I also enjoyed "Enemy at the Gates". It is mostly about 6th armies struggle against the ruskies.

>be german, laying in a bunker with two bullets in leg
>surrounded by dead and dying germans left for the russians.
>feel something wet on shoulder
>look up to see a small hole above, with fuel being poured inside
>hear ivan asking for a lite
>collapse to the ground and crawl to the exit
>fireball behind you explodes, comrades burned alive
>make it out
>Feel iron barrel on the back of the head
>realize its a soviet soldier, with a pistol to your scalp
>hear another russian ask your would-be-killer
"what would comrade stalin do?"
>ruskie clicks pistol's safety back, leaving you alone on the street
>go on to survive a few years in a gulag and make it back to germany.

Whats the difference between prose and poetry or prose and essays? Prose...contains the word Rose....sounds pretty poetic.
