Two Brothers by Ben Elton

image-medium Berlin, 1920. Two babies are born. Two brothers. United and indivisible, sharing everything. Twins in all but blood. As Germany marches into its Nazi Armageddon, the ties of family, friendship and love are tested to the very limits of endurance. And the brothers are faced with an unimaginable choice. Which one of them will survive?

A really enjoyable read — keeping you interested all the way through. The characters were well drawn and it was easy t understand why they took the actions they did. It was interesting to know that the idea was generated by the author’s two uncles who, like the brothers in the story, served on very different sides in World War 11 The ending,which I won’t reveal, was much better than a happy ever after. One of the best Readers’ Group books ever
