Review: Friedrich

User Review  - Mazzou B - Goodreads

I love WWII books. This one began in an interesting fashion, but is too short to be good. Just as a warning, the book ends with the death of Friedrich. It is a good book in the way that it depicts the beginning of the hostility and hatred towards the Jews in Germany just as WWII began. Read full review
