Wow. Just wow.
I started reading this, and I was totally bored at the beginning, but it was a book club book, so I went back to it. It definitely picked up!
As a little Jewish girl, I had plenty of experience with World War II books written from the Jewish perspective. This was my first introduction to a mindset that was not automatically and distinctly against Germany. Going through this guys life, thoughts, and experiences from when he was 14 years old was truly mind opening! And his actions that were blindly pro-Germany could be understood and seen, even though his father and uncle were clearly against that!
Going through the terrors and personal tragedies with him helped build an understanding of his final viewpoint. It's hard to realize the struggles and misfortunes of EVERYONE living in Germany or Holland, or Poland, or Austria, or really any of the European countries affected by Hitler. This book really helped the reader to see a more well-rounded experience!

Having immigrated from Poland, I have heard many stories from my family and friends who lived thru similar experiences as described in the book. I simply could not put it down. The story is not only exciting to hear but also very well written, keeping interest of the reader while describing events as if we were there. Great read !!!
