After the sudden death of their parents, the three Baudelaire children must depend on each other and their wits when it turns out that the distant relative who is appointed their guardian is determined to use any means necessary to get their fortune.
“If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched and will most likely fill you with deep despair.” ~from the Author

Newly arrived on the Western front and assigned as a medic, Rivera finds himself in the middle of the Battle of the Bulge, cut off behind enemy lines–and his only companion is a Nazi trained Doberman pinscher.
“I like this book” ~David
I know that isn’t much to go on, but David liked it, and I’d never noticed this book series before. The summary sounds really good and The Battle of the Bulge is interesting learn about – let alone imagining actually being there.
