Q: Today’s is the US’ Independence Day. Share your favorite book with a war in it, or an overthrow of the government.
That's a tough one, cause there are several that come to mind. For example, Desiree, which takes place before, during, and after the French Revolution. War and Peace. Seven Days in May (an attempted overthrow, luckily it failed, but it's also a great movie, with Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster).
But I would have to say my all time favorite book with a war in it would have to be the one I've read seventeen times - Gone With The Wind. It takes place during the Civil War, of course, and I have yet to get tired of it.
