                This book is about when Nazis were trying to get control of WW2 and was talking about how these soldiers where getting prepared and what they were going to do to able to win this war.There was a kid named Victor who was a trooper.And was trying to find different ways to be able to control this war.But when the war came nothing was like it was said.Over 600,000 people died in this war,And over 1,000 people were injured.But eventully the Nazis had lost the war.I give this book a 4 because i like how they gave me information about who was trying to plan this out and was trying to fix the problem they were having.But the only thing i wish they done to this book is to make it longer to give me more info about the people who had died and survied ww2.

                    I think that I Survived: The Battle of D-Day by Lauren Tarshis is a great book in my opinion and I recommend this book to people in fourth grade and above. I really like the way the author shows how life was like during World War 2 in a village in which Nazis have control of it. The story follows Paul who lives in Le Roc (a fictional village) which is controlled by the Nazis and is trying to get a gift for his Mom’s birthday. As the story continues, Paul rescues an American paratrooper named Victor. Then, Paul unravels many secrets after Victor tells him that he is part of the resistance. After, Paul gets in the middle of a deadly, bloody battle on the beaches of Normandy known as D-Day. I really like how the author Lauren Tarshis flash-forwards to a cliffhanger involving Paul in the first chapter. The genre of this book is historical fiction and I would definitely recommend this book to people who love the I Survived series and historical fiction books.
