    "I was really into war novels for a while and wanted one of the best books about war. I was told about Into Thin Air by Krakaur and it's not really about a war, but a weather event. I was really confused when I got it recommended to me, but it was an okay book."

    "I don't think Miracle in the Andes qualifies as a book about war so this isn't even applicable at all for the category. There is actually nothing even about war in this book as far as what I can tell, rather it is all about survivalism after an airplane crash. If it was under "best books about survivalism" then I may refer it for that, but not for this list at all. 0/5 just for not being relevant!"

    "Dead Wake is an excellent read in the war time genre. Based during WWII, Erik Larson immerses you in a captivating story centered around the luxury cruise liner Lusitania. The way Erik Larson paints the scene makes it as though you are really there. He does a great job contrasting the different viewpoints and puts the story together in a way that really invokes our senses. Outstanding WWII novel that will not disappoint. "

European immigrants, fleeing to the United States, find no respite in the harsh living conditions of the American frontier. Culminating with the devasting blizzard of 1888, the book sadly but frankly described the empty promise of the American dream for those who weren’t born here. "

    "Sometimes it is hard to imagine the sordid tales of our history, yet sometimes it is worthwhile to be reminded of the struggles of African Americans in our country. 12 Years a Slave is historically powerful memoir that takes the reader back in time. Through his words, we are able to experience his pain, his suffering, and the strength it takes to be black in America during the 1800's. The writing is superb and gut wrenching at time. If there was ever a book that can accurately recall the struggles of American slaves, this is it. Although not set during the Civil War, it really lays the foundation for the tension that would start the division between North and South. "

    "I bought this book last summer on a whim, but because I'm not a very big war-time historical fiction reader, much less one for a culture I'm not too familiar with, it took me a few months to actually crack it open. Despite the title of the book, this book follows the story of a young boy named Reza. Some of the events in the book I had heard of happening before, in some other media, and was a bit uncomfortable for me to read. Nonetheless, at the same time, this is an important to read so people can understand how things go down in these environments. We see a lot of books about how war was like in the Civil War, in World Wars, in Vietnam, and in orders. This is a good book to let us see what war is like in Iran from a single person's point of view, kind of like "Night" lets us see the horrors of the Holocaust. In the end, as hesitant as I was in reading it, and as uncomfortable as I was while reading it (I had to read comics after!) I did enjoy the book and would recommend it."

    "I just finished reading Warthog: Flying the A-10 in the Gulf War and I think it's one of the best books about war that I have ever read. It was easy to read and understand what William L. Smallwood was writing. It goes a really good job of balancing first-hand information with history. "

    "This book brought back memories of the time for me. I was only 12 years old but remember it well. It was interesting to learn the truth about this war. It was portrayed much differently in the media and my perception of what really took place was way off base. It is a long book but very interesting and well worth the read."

    "Great book. While it's fiction, we can be damn sure stories like this happened numerous times. I also really liked that it was about the Armenian genocide, something that gets overlooked often, especially in our culture. A great addition to the collection of stories telling of the horrors of mass violence."
