    1. Perfect for : Personal reading, book club read, possible History class read?In a nutshell: This book was very eye-opening for me. I've never considered the after-affects of war, and it's children: the destruction, hunger, military presence, loss of friends and family, etc. This wonderful book follows the life of 4 year-old Erich for 10 years as he is affected by World War II, and as he is transported to Ireland with his 3 year-old brother Hans as part of Operation Shamrock. The brothers are sepa [...]

    2. My friend Padraig the writer says that when you write an historical novel the best way to go about it is to do a lot of research and then forget it and write the story. In Hitler and Mars Bars Dianne Ascroft has done just that. The book is poignant without sentimentality, gripping without striving for suspense and utterly believable. I couldn't put it down.Erich is a 5-year-old German orphan sent to Ireland after the second world war on a program arranged by the Irish Red Cross. Although traumat [...]

    3. Just received my copy of my friends new book :D. Can't wait to get started reading it! :DWell i have now read itThis is an interesting and heart touching story of a little boy affected by war and shipped to a foreign land to be fostered by several familes over the years and how he deals with the different circumstances emotional journey giving an interesting perception of "racism" at that point in time and the naivety of children! A definate "must read" :-) You can't help but be touched by his e [...]

    4. Here is something which happened in during and after World War II which I have never heard of before. Author Dianne Ascroft meticulously immerses herself into the Operation Shamrock legacy and from it is born a fictional character named Erich who invites us into his world and who is so lonely at times that it made my heart break. I kept asking myself, how could I not have known about this before? Thank you to the author for telling this story which so needs to be heard.

    5. Though Hitler and Mars Bars seemed long in some parts, I thought it was a great book. Ascroft brings attention to Operation Shamrock, a program I knew nothing about prior to the story, and instead of simply providing details about the program, she brings it to life through the story of Erich and Hans.Read the full review on Diary of an Eccentric.

    6. The story is seen through the eyes of young Erich, a German refugee brought to Ireland after Word War II as part of Operation Shamrock and the narrative style is a little hard to get to grips with to begin with. In the end, it works quite well - and the conclusion of story is convincingly realistic - I was grateful that it didn't have a faux-happy ending.

    7. This was an interesting book about an obscure area of Post WW2 life. I had never heard of Operation Shamrock and found the topic fascinating. I hope the author writes a sequel and lets us know what happens to the boys.
