2012 Challenge--War Through the Generations: WWI


This challenge is hosted by Anna (Diary of an Eccentric) and Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit) and runs from January 1 through December 31, 2012. I have taken the text from the challenge's website.

Concept:

This year you have options when reading your fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, etc. with the WWI as the primary or secondary theme.
Books can take place before, during, or after the war, so long as the conflicts that led to the war or the war itself are important to the story. Books from other challenges count so long as they meet the above criteria.
Dip: Read 1-3 books in any genre with WWI as a primary or secondary theme.
Wade: Read 4-10 books in any genre with WWI as a primary or secondary theme.
Swim: Read 11 or more books in any genre with WWI as a primary or secondary theme.
Additionally, we’ve decided that since there are so many great movies out there about WWI, you can substitute or add a movie or two to your list this year and have it count toward your totals.

Goal:
I plan on taking a dip and reading 1 to 3 books about WWI. WWI is one of my all-time favorite eras in history so I am really excited about this challenge!

Books I hope to read:
As with my other challenges, I haven't thought about which books to read yet. Any suggestions?
