Do you have any WWII based books you would add to our list?

Li Lun, Lad of Courage, by Carolyn Treffinger

Started 01.06.20 • Finished 01.15.20 / 5 stars

"I liked when Li Lun was able to save the last rice stalk. I also liked that they had the big temple ceremony and that his father and mother greeted him well. He had courage when he had to climb up the mountain, find water, stay on the mountain by himself for a very long time. Some of the other things he did was keep the rats and gulls away from the final rice plant, and also survive though he only had a little food left. He demonstrated that people could grow rice on Blue Shark Island as well as fish."
