I'm not a big fan of war romances, but I ended up kind of liking this story. Set during World War II, it tells the separate tales of two lovers, a German and a British soldiers, and all the adventures they must face before the War ends in 1945. Reading historical fiction is kind of interesting because you kind of know some of the things that are going to happen (like how long the war is going to last, or some key events in history), but you still have the unpredictable fate of the fiction love story that is being told in the book. In a way, I was interested in reading about the atrocities of the war - even though what characters went through is mere fiction, the things that they went through were actually true things that indeed happened during the war, and that is what makes the story even more compelling.
