  •  The best I have read (7+ / 0-)

    is Vera Brittain's Testament of Youth.  Her brother and her fiance both served and she went and served as a nurse.  Both brother and fiance were killed; paired with what she saw as a nurse, she became a strong pacifist and was maligned during WWII.

    This was the first book that helped me to see that war didn't take place an battlefields, but on farms and roads and villages where people lived.  It completely changed how I thought about war.

    A very thoughtful and thought-provoking d'var Torah, NVT.  

    Old people are like old houses - lots of character, but the plumbing leaks.
