Historical Fiction Recommendations (WWII Era)

Post by gfowle » 08 Sep 2018, 21:49

I am extremely passionate about successful World War II-era historical fiction, and I have read basically every popular book from this time. I am looking for recommendations for non-mainstream books from this general era.

A few books from this genre that I love are:
Lilac Girls
The Nightingale
All the Light We Cannot See
The Librarian of Auschwitz
The Painted Wall
Saving Italy
Beneath A Scarlet Sky

I definitely should have included this one on my original list, because I have read it, and I absolutely loved it!

Idk if anyone else has recommended it yet, but The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher is a good one. Also, Coming Home (same author) is set just before and during WWII, but I'm not sure of that one yet as I've just started it :))
