1.) The Red Line by John Nichol
Night after night during the Second World War hundreds of RAF crews (including many Canadians) took off from England to drop bombs over Germany. On March 30, 1944 795 planes headed for Nuremberg. It turned out to be the worst night of the war for Bomber Command. 95 planes were shot down. 545 men didn't come home. It was a disaster.
2.) Heart of a Tiger by Herschel Cobb
The story of a boy who was neglected and abused by his parents, but then found happiness and peace with his grandfather. It's a story that probably would never have been published if the grandfather hadn't been Ty Cobb, perhaps the best baseball player in history, and a man known for his ferocious, unpleasant personality on and off the field.
