I prefer more serious, literary works; but I admit I'll devour pretty much anything related to the second World War, the European theater specifically. If anyone has any recommendations, let me know! Before anyone suggests The Nightingale and/or All The Light We Cannot See, those are already on my TBR list.

Some books in this period I love: City of Women, by David Gillham, Code Name Verity and Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein, and Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly.
