Daily Graphic Novel Recommendation 47

Alan's War

by Emanuel Guibert
Genre notes: biography, WWII, post-war, faith
336 pages
ISBN: 1596430966 (Amazon)

This is the ranging biography of a no-name private who went to war like all American men in the early '40s. But it's about so much more. Better to just read my actual review. It's a fantastic FANTASTIC book that I put off for a long time because I didn't think it would interest me. It may be my favourite biography.

3 Stars = Good
2 Stars = Ok
