    I never visited Oradour sur Glane but in High school I read a paperback still available today called "War for an Afternoon" Although the photos shown in the links provided in the above posts are chilling,,,reading this book completes the feeling of attrocity that was comitted on that day,. This is a worth while book to read,,and sickening to say the least of what some the these SS men did to the people and animals. Here is a photo of the book. Regards Larry

    Another memorable book which has a sizable section of it concerning Oradour is "The Scourge of the Swastika" by Lord Russell of Liverpool. It was one of the first post war books that came out and spoke openly of the atrocities committed.
