This was a great book. Not only did I learn about an interesting episode in World War II, I also learned a lot about art, art history, and art forgery. A fun and informative read.
I love this series of Peanuts publications. The books are beautifully bound and printed, with lovingly written introductions and a very helpful appendix where you can look up a specific strip.
The book has a lot of great topics and helpful tips on things you'd like to learn (how to swaddle a baby, sew a pillowcase, shake a martini, etc.) However, a lot of the directions are harder to follow because there are not enough (or barely any) diagrams or visuals.
As far as books for learning French go, this one is pretty helpful. The phonetic pronunciation guides are easy to follow. Obviously, this is not the best way to learn French, but it's nice for picking up a few phrases or learning to pronounce a few things at a French restaurant.
This documentary series does a great job of balancing the narrative of the war front and the home front. Probably my favorite documentary series.
