My 10 yr old has been playing Memoir for about a year now. H really loves all things WW2. Does nyone have recomendations for companion books (or just good 10 yr old friendly books on ww2). Id especially love some that would pair up the scenarios from memoir 44 with story's about those battles

The Osprey books may be a good choice; they aren't terribly long. They have several titles pertaining to D-Day and Normandy.

I would recommend "The D-day Experience" by Richard Holmes ISBN 9781847325006. Full of photos, maps and reproductions of D-day memorabilia.

Do you have the Memoir 44 Strategy and Tactics Guide? It's a fantastic tomb, teaches so much about Memoir 44 and a lot of ignorance applies t many other games, in addition throughout the book are historical asides giving nice bits of history.

"Guts and Glory: WWII" is part of a series of history books geared toward modern youth. They are a great source of copious info, presented in a way that is very approachable to the current 10 year old.

I found that an Atlas with commentary provides a good summary and is useful when reading other books. For example, I have this one and I think another and its good:


War Maps: World War II from September 1939 to August 1945: Air, Sea & Land, Battle by Battle Hardcover – October 22, 1988
