Five Novels about WWII

Antony Beevor picks a list of five works of fiction about World War II.

I'd add:

  • Corelli's Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres

  • Treblinka by Jean-Francois Steiner

  • The Wall by John Hersey

  • The Secret of Santa Vittoria by Robert Crichton

  • An Operational Necessity by Gwyn Griffin

  • King Rat by James Clavell

  • Badenheim 1939 by Aharon Appelfeld

  • Mendelssohn is on the Roof by Jiri Weil

  • The Winds of War by Herman Wouk

How many great ones have I missed? [Let's throw in all of the Alan Furst novels.]
