War is Hell – Skeletons at the Feast

I’ve always been anti-war.

Citizens should do everything they can to avoid war.

That said, the allies response to Hitler’s invasions and the attack on Pearl Harbor were justified.

Even Gandhi supported the allies in WW II.

Skeletons at the Feast by Chris Bohjalian (2008) is the story of a journey in the waning months of World War II.

A Prussian family flees west ahead of the advancing Russian army. They bring a Scottish POW that had been working on their farm. En route, they are joined by Uri Singer, an escaped Jew posing as a Nazi officer.

At the same time, Nazi work camp prisoners are being marched west.

It’s all horrible.

War is Hell.
