Learn More About World War II

A guide by Natasha (Seattle)

Products sampled from this guide:
On June 6th, 1944, 13,000 paratroopers lept from 12 carrier groups of C-47s to land in the area of Normandy, France. From that day forward, the United States would be inexplicably tied to the war in Europe, and the future of our sister-country, Great Britain. Though there have been many, many novels written about World War II, and the experiences shared both across seas and on the home front, here is my personal favorite reading list combing both fiction and non-fiction. Enjoy!
