Review: MY BROTHER’S SHADOW by Monika Schroder

The Children’s War recently read and reviewed My Brother’s Shadow by Monika Schroder for the WWI Reading Challenge.  Here’s an excerpt:

Schröder has done an excellent job in researching and representing the time and events she is writing about.  One of the things that Hitler blamed the loss of the war on was the supposed lack of support by the home front and the readers sees this attitude reflected in Hans’s reactions to things after he come home.  Hans also feels the same kind of virulent anti-Semitism that propelled Hitler’s later policies.  These feelings are portrayed with such intensity that I knew it would only a matter of a few years before Hans would have been a member of the fledging Nazi party, as did so many of his real life counterparts.
