Review: THE BIELSKI BROTHERS by Peter Duffy

Christina from Jackets & Covers read The Bielski Brothers: The True Story of Three Men Who Defied the Nazis, Saved 1,200 Jews, and Built a Village in the Forest by Peter Duffy, which counts toward the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s a little of what she had to say about the book:

I had expected more insight into the Bielskis’ life inside the forest; however, The Bielski Brothers chose to focus on life around the forest, not in it. So much so that it gets bogged down in the details and the Bielski Brothers get the short end of the stick — their story isn’t being told; the story of Jews in Poland is.
