This is a fantastic book. I bought it and I couldn't put it down. If you're expecting a boring evil vs. good treatise on the war, you'll find a refreshingly human portrayal of people in extraordinary circumstances trying to survive and still follow their own principles.
"Roses And Chocolates" is defined by two characters Hans and Veronika based on World War II. Old days true love really amazing to read and mind blowing dialog of real love.
Highly remarkable and readable to all.
