Wolfsangel is a haunting fictional story based on the real-life tragedy of the WWII massacre of Oradour-sur-Glane. It was slightly slow-going in the beginning (due to setting up and getting to know everyone) but by the time I was halfway through the book I couldn’t put it down and read obsessively until it was finished.
This book is set in a tiny French town that is being occupied by Germans, and by reading this book we learn to love players on both sides of the war. I sympathized with the French farmer who only wants to sell his crops to his neighbors and make a living, as well as the German soldier who worries about his family’s safety back home.
I think the author did a great job of showing the many viewpoints of war- the good and the bad.This was also quite an emotional roller coaster and it was frustrating when certain relationships or situations didn’t pan out the way that I wanted them to, but that’s life. I was super excited to find out that there are two more books set in this world and I really hope I get to read them soon.
