World War II Book 1: The Right Fight

We rated this book:


This is the first book in a new series by Chris Lynch about World War II. I was eager to read this, because I had read this author’s Vietnam War series, and really enjoyed it.

The Right Fight starts out with the main character Roman ( a minor league baseball player ) who enlists into the Army to drive a tank in North Africa. After some training, and being in Pearl Harbor, he fights the Nazis in Tunisia, and tells about it by sending home letters to his girlfriend Hannah.

The book is very descriptive, and gives a first-hand account of what life must have been like as a soldier in World War II. He makes some good friends, and that sort of keeps him going, along with his letters. I didn’t know too much about this part of World War II, so it was informative.

I did not like this book as much as the Vietnam series, mainly because I am not a baseball fan, but I would recommend it to anyone my age who enjoys military stories.
