"The Small and the Brave" is a story of WWII Germany from the memories of Rosi Stachel. It spans her life from when she was four (4) years old through 18-1/2 years. Although it is a fairly short book (30 pages), it speaks volumes. In reading it, you can actually feel what the German people themselves endured. I couldn't put it down. I later had the pleasure of meeting the author, Rosemarie Stachel. She is a virant, outgoing person in spite of all that she lived through. This is a "must read" for everyone. I highly recommend this book. It makes you wonder how many other Rosi Stachel's are out there.
