***WARNING** Review Contains SPOILERS.

This was just an amazing history book of WWII! I was so interested in this book and I had to get it. I really loved this book. This book was fascinating to read. I have always wanted to read something about history. The Nazi Invasion, 1944 was a nice book. I really loved Papa, Max, Zena, and Aunt Hannah. I think Max should be a survival guide to schools. Zena was a respectful sister. Papa, I feel bad for him because he was taken by the Nazi's. Aunt Hannah was an amazing aunt to have! This book is one of the truly amazing historical book.
