Samenvatting

The Caught in Conflict Collection is an imprint of fast-paced, historically accurate, morally-complex quick reads for Adults and Teens. They can be read in any order.


Over the course of a single night in 1945, in a ditch by the flickering light of a burning Tiger tank, a young German soldier tells his life story to a wounded Canadian. Growing up in Germany in the 1930s, Dieter has been seduced by the pomp and propaganda of the Nazis. Now, having seen battle and having discovered the evils his countrymen are capable of, the best he can hope for is survival.


''…a though-provoking novel about the experiences of war.'' CCBN


''…a compelling and thoughtful story of war that should appeal to a wide range of readers.'' Q&Q

Recensie(s)

Although students in Grade 6 should be able to understand the exciting and vividly written book, the issues it raises also make it suitable for students in senior grades. It is a superb introduction to the ambiguities and complexities that surround the study of Wolrd War II. It deals thoughtfully with a number of important and throny questions about German life and individual responsibility versus collective guilt during the Nazi era. It realistically describes the instutionalized pre-war anti-Semitism of the Nazis, which led inexorably to Holocaust's death camps. As well, the destruction of Berlin and the vicious battles between SS Panzer units and Canadians and Caen, in 1944, are honestly portrayed. --CM Magazine-- (09/05/2003) This is an interesting read and will provide much to talk and think about for ages 12-16. --Marcia Weiss Posner, Jewish Book Council-- (05/07/2016) Equal parts philosophical debate and historical fiction, this book, like Wilson's And in the Morning, presents a compelling and thoughtful story of war that should appeal to a wide range of readers. --Quill & Quire-- (10/01/2003)
