Lions of Carentan may be one of the best collections of personal stories and observations about World War II. Clearly, it is told from the Fallschirmjager point of view, which can be a little unnerving when a reader from the USA realizes the word "enemy" used in the book refers to our fathers and grandfathers. However, I was often surprised by the moments of humanity shown by both sides of the combatants. The descriptions of the battles and the undertones of the political strife between the Fallschirmjager leadership and Hitler is an amazing story. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the European Theatre during WWII.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
