The Night I Danced with Rommel is about the life of a young German woman, Hilde, who survived World War II. The author brings to life the time period, accurately describing the events, which shaped Hilde’s life. The reader is drawn into a war-torn country where civilians are not privy to the truth of Hitler’s regime, where speculation and fear dominate daily life. Hilde’s courage is evident as she tries to maintain a degree of normalcy with her young children while her husband is deployed, which is severely tested during the bombing raids. The gamut of emotions is evident, no matter the nationality of the political arena. A great read and highly recommended.
