Recently, I have been plowing through a lot of fiction and history about World War Two. I recently started reading C.S. Lewis' collection of essays, The Weight of Glory. As I was reading W of G I thought how interesting it would be to read more books, essays, novels, etc. written during the war to get more of a sense of the kinds of things that folks were grappling with in the moment.
Any suggestions for WWII?
On my list is:
Few Eggs and No Oranges: Vere Hodgson's Diary, 1940-45, Vere Hodgson
David Golder, The Ball, Snow in Autumn, The Courilof Affair, by Irene Nemirovsky
Any other suggestions, specially on essays (kind of reflections, op-ed types, arguments, etc.) written during the war, would be most appreciated.
