Recent Non-Fiction Reads

I try to read at least 2 non fiction books a month. Here are some of my recent reads that I enjoyed.

  1. The Ghost Army: The Fakes and Tricks of the Allies’ Unit That Fooled Hitler’s Troops
    by Gerry Souter, Janet Souter
    (5/5)

I wanted to read this book after watching the PBS documentary called The Ghost Army. I highly recommend watching it before or after reading this book. Both are equally good sources to hear about the First Army Group. The information about this group had been classified for a long time so this book is interesting since we get to read about facts from the veterans who were part of this group. This book was full of information and was a good place to start to learn about this not so known part of WWII.

2. Hang Tough: The WWII Letters and Artifacts of Major Dick Winters
by Erik Dorr, Jared Frederick, Bradford Freeman (Foreword) (5/5)

This was one of my most anticipated books of the year and it was truly a special book. The book is composed of letters from Major Winters that he wrote in training to the end of the war. I always want to learn more about Major Winters and also the men of Easy Company and I did learn some new information. It was interesting reading his accounts and getting to see the war through his point of view. I cannot recommend this book enough especially if you are a fan of Band of Brothers.
