Monday Memories - Soldier X

Welcome to my meme, Monday Memories, where I feature favorite books we've loved from the past. It's been quite a while since I've posted one of these, so just to remind you: You can link to an old review, or write something new about a beloved book from your past. Really, what's important is not the book, but why it is memorable to you. So, have fun reminiscing, and leave a comment below, so we can all enjoy your memories.
Soldier X  by Don L. Wulffson was published in 2003 and I read it shortly after publication. This is such a unique book because it is about WWII, but doesn't involve the United States at all. The main character is a German soldier caught behind enemy lines in Russia. It's horrible and scary. He has mixed loyalties, since his ancestry is Russian (and conveniently, he speaks Russian.) It's a fascinating story, with lots of potential for discussion. What would you do to survive?

I often recommend this book to my boys who like war stories. There's some blood and gore. And heart pounding danger! It's a quick read, and if you get a chance, you should pick it up. Soldier X  left a big impression on me, and I have never forgotten this book.

Share one of your cherished book memories!
