Do you read war stories? Fictional ones? Histories?
A: No I do not read war stories. In college I read anything I could get my hands on about WWII and I can remember reading a comic book that are aimed at young adults to help them understand the emotional aspect of WWII. I do however remember being tragically moved by a non-fiction book that was compiled of WWII photo's of the the destruction of the war. I was shocked that in some of the pictures it showed the concentration camps and honestly it was pictures of humanities worst nightmares. I could not comprehend that people were treated that way and it shocked me to the point that even today over 15 years later I can close my eyes and see the horrid pictures crystal clear like it was yesterday.
Sadly my main reason for not reading anything set in America is that I am working on my own WWII set book and until I finish it I do not want to read something by someone else that might make its way into my own thought process.
