Recent Comments "The Watch on the Bridge"

This is a fabulous book and great reading! It takes place in WW2 during the advance on Berlin. A story about a bridge over the Rhine river that is key in the allies advance and the defense of Germany. Suspenseful, thrilling and the kind of book that draws you in. At 320 pages, it doesn't take that long to read at all. A historical fiction definitely worth your time! I recommend this book to anyone interested in WW2 history, whether factual or fictional.

A detailed World War II story about the bridge at Remagen which enabled the allies to shorten the war with Germany. That aspect of the book was realistic and lifelike. It interspersed a love story between an escaped American POW and a German girl which was more superficial and dramatic. The war aspects of this novel read like a history book, while the relationship read more like a harlequin romance.
