Norman Mailer's "Naked and the Dead" is about WW II and has received great reviews over the years. Also, Erich Marie Remarque's "All Quiet on the Western Front" is about WW I from the German point of view and is considered a classic.

Gotta second All Quiet

That is one of my all time favorites, it is told from the German point of view but really what he goes through could have been any solider from either side great read!

Very disturbing book. Makes one think and reflect. Very sad book also.

I did not find it depressing, but hopeful. I tried to read it in the original German where the title is "Im Westens nicht neues" or "Nothing new in the west."
