"Flying a Flag for Hitler" tells the relation of the babyish Elsbeth Emmerich escalating up in Nazi Germany during World War II. This is a superlative minute narrative graphic by Elsbeth herself.

Of how her Daddy against your will goes off to war to fighting and never comes support from the snowy wilderness of Leningrad. Of how her parent loses her job as an athletic's coach because she refuses to secure the celebration. Of her how her grandad is cyclically interpreted away by the Gestapo for not flying the emblem banner.

What in particular struck me was how kindred her reminiscences are compared to my own mother's, as Elsbeth was exhausted from the metropolitan to the country, only as my female parent was from Liverpool to North Wales. The photographs Elsbeth shows us of herself in school are nearly identical to the ones I have of my female parent from the behind time cardinal mid-thirties.

I particularly saved the day they were in the long run conquered/invaded/liberated by the Americans specifically twisting. They had been told they would be tortured and iridescent. Elsbeth and her male sibling and sisters, panic-stricken of what was about to happen, hid in an old wash tub. Her speech identify what happened subsequent far better than hole in the ground ever could.

"I became so content and all relieved and gladdened when I accomplished that the Americans were not "the enemy" as I had been taught, but middle-of-the-road human beings, affable and generous. No one was being colorful and no one was one punished. I didn't have to plead for my parent or sisters' lives. I cannot call to mind ever fancy happier or more than thankful than I did after the Americans came to our lesser small town."

This is a terrific lilliputian work. I have read hundreds of books almost the Second World War, some fact and fiction, and I have no wavering in recommending this one.
