I picked this book up in hopes it would be a good book for my 5th graders to help teach my WWII unit. I read it yesterday and though I thought it was a little too detailed for my 5th graders I found it to be one of the most beautifully written stories I have ever read. The description and beautiful figurative language he used to write this memoir made it difficult to put down. I would put it up there with "To Kill A Mockingbird" and "Number the Stars."
