    Children To A Degree.

    We always read about the key players sounding WW II. This book, though it is fiction, it is based on true events. The children of the Hitler Youth. This book focuses around 10-14 young boys. Drafted and forced to fight for cause they did not understand or be executed by the SS. An account of what it was like for the children of Nazi Germany, a growing up under The Third Reich. By Horst Christian.

    A fascinating story not done justice

    The title is misleading; it's not about growing up in the Third Reich so much as being a member of the Hitler Youth during the last phase of the war, during the invasion by Russia and the fall of Berlin. It's a little-known subject compared to the main themes of WWII generally but well worth the reading. However the writing is stilted and at times difficult to get through, an awkward combination of Germanisms and modern American slang. I would have enjoyed it more if it had been a smoother, more flowing read. However it is still a book that anyone interested in the subject should read. It has profound historical value and I believe is an authentic voice.

    Of German decent

    This was a real telling story of those who survived the worst was in history. They could have been my cousins.

    You won't be able to put it down

    Loved the book! Parts are difficult to read, especially towards the end. I've always been interested in World War II. I had an uncle at Pearl Harbor and another that died from his wounds at Normandy. This book tells the story through the eyes of a German boy just before the fall of Berlin. This book will make you feel like you were there and make you truly grateful that you weren't.

    Children to a Degree - Good story

    The story is very arresting. I recommend the book but be ready to overlook a good many typos. Still worth reading.
