Hart's War

Hart's War







Second Lieutenant Tommy Hart, a navigator whose B-25 was shot out of the sky in 1942, is burdened with guilt as the only surviving member of his crew. Now he is just another POW at the fiercely guarded Stalag Luft 13 in Bavaria.

Then routine comes to a halt with the arrival of a new prisoner: First Lieutenant Lincoln Scott, an African American Tuskegee airman who instantly becomes the target of contempt from his fellow soldiers. When a prisoner is brutally murdered, and all the blood-soaked evidence points to Scott, Hart is tapped to defend the soldier. In a trial rife with racial tension and raw conflict, where the lines between ally and enemy blur, there are those with their own secret motives, and a burning passion for a rush to judgment, no matter what the cost.

    Depressing book (And I mean depressing because the book is so bad it will put a sad face in every reader it gains). The story is kinda good, but it gets annoying VERY often. I do not recommend it to a...

    A truly outstanding book. It will put readers into the same mindset as To Kill a Mockingbird and also A Time To Kill. Also, if you haven't done so already, rent the video about the Tuskeegee Airmen. I...

    I loved the movie, and the book is even better. I'm happier with the ending of the book than I am with the movie ending. ...

    Excellent book. Couldn't put it down once it got going. It's basically a crime drama set in a POW camp during WWII. Pros:1. Good main character. He cares about other people. He doesn't say he'll do th...

    I picked up Hart's War expecting the standard WW2 Narrative, and I wasn't insanely disappointed in this regard. I wasn't able to finish the book and was never truly felt drawn into the story portrayed...

    I loved it, but.How many times do you need to specify that the watch is the one Lydia gave him, or that Fenelli is "the medic from Cleveland", or that Tommy and Lincoln's last names are Hart and Scott...
