This month, Alan, our Library Director and a Vietnam Conflict Marine Corps veteran, joined Marianne to talk about his five favorite World War II novels. Our theme is "Book Groups Read About War" for August to commemorate the many battles that are reaching a milestone this year. For example, this August is the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I.
