and it is...but it is also oh. so. much. more!
It is about a family that will live during the most difficult times in history.
They are the Eckhardt family and after three daughters they finally have a son.
A son who turns out to be brilliant.
A son who is doted upon.
A son who is given the chance for an education beyond the normal peasant child.
But Hans is also young and foolish and caught up in the unrest that is descending upon the world.
Choosing to go to the battlefront instead of the University will change young Hans perception of the world and of mankind.
As this book is so appropriately titled this family will go through a fire so unquenchable that they will either become stronger like steel or they will break and shatter.
Follow the Eckhardt family as they first-hand witness "an explosion of technology"-- electricity, the telephone, the automobile...
And as they battle to live through the "War to End All Wars."
AN AMAZING BOOK!
AN AMAZING TIME IN HISTORY!
DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS ONE!
Lund compares the war-torn families to the early pioneers, tempered like steel by hardship. Some threw up their hands, gave up, and cursed God. While others were strengthened in adversity. Their stories continue to inspire us today.
Life is indeed a different type of education, that often comes with great sacrifice and pain. Like young, Hans Otto, we must all take responsibility for our foolish choices, seize the day, and make the most of our lives.
