5 Best Books: Set in War

The 5 Best Books meme is hosted by Cassandra at Indie Reader Houston.

I found this meme through Bibliosue and thought it sounded like fun. This week's 5 Best is the 5 best books that take place during a war. Here are a few off the top of my head:

1. The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara
2. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
3. The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
4. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
5. Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut

This sounds like a fun meme. Never heard of it before! The Killer Angels, Gone With The Wind, and The Diary of a Young Girl are great picks!

An interesting meme. I've posted my 5 faves too. Haven't read these books except for Gone with the wind.

I love your list! Thanks for joining us. I've added you to the (new) linky.

I'm proud of myself because I've read 3 of the ones on your list. I have always wanted to read The Killer Angels. Definitely going to have to add that one to the list.

I kept my list to fiction otherwise Anne Frank's Diary would definitely have been at the top.

Congratulations on your child's graduation!

I haven't heard of The Killer Angels before; I'll have to check it out.

I had both number two and number three on my list too!
