World War II - Historical Fiction: Books
The action in many of the novels by Furst and Kerr takes place either before or after the war and do not appear on this list.

Two teenagers are caught up in the frenzy and the mortal dangers of World War II: a German boy who is extraordinarily clever with all things electronic, and a blind French girl who reads Jules Verne. Together, these two elements constituted what may well have been the most elaborate deception ever deployed in war.
