Beyond Bestsellers: Weird War II History
Created by SnoIsleLib_EmilyZ | 8 items
When the terms “pre-war” and “post-war” are used there’s a reason few ask “which war?” Still being dissected roughly 75 years later, WWII left few on this planet untouched. These books explore still more exceptional and relatively unfamiliar tales of the strangest schemes, crimes, survivals, heroes, and villains of this era and its aftermath.
