no, not german armor superweapons. but that old graphic novel about a man's father's experiences in the holocaust. what is really unique is that all the jewish characters as potrayed as mice (hence the german-like spelled MAUS), the nazis cats, americans dogs, and french frogs (haha). read this back in middle school but even then it was a very very powerful book to a person of my age. not only does the story humanize the animals to the point where the initial ridiculousness of them is looked past, but the questions it arises about legacy and culture lost between generations is just great. i recommend you guys check it out.

Seems like Kitler is seen in action as well in this book..
