Hey, everyone! Mike S here with another Top Five List! This time, I'm listing the Top Five Non-Fiction Books to Turn Into Movies!
1. "Hunting Eichmann" by Neal Bascomb- This is a really interesting and exciting book about a group of Holocaust survivors who joined forces with the newly formed Mossad to hunt down Adolf Eichmann and bring him to justice. It's an incredibly fascinating read, and I think it would make an equally fascinating movie.
2. "Gallipoli" by Alan Moorehead- I know a movie about Gallipoli has been made- but I think that this book would be a wonderful basis for another one. Just an amazing account of the tragedy that enshrouded the whole affair.
3. "The Murder of Napoleon" by Ben Weider & David Hapgood- I found this book to be a really unique and interesting examination of Napoleon's last years- and investigation into his mysterious death.
4. "The Murder of Tutankhamen" by Bob Brier, PhD- I first read this book in High School, and it helped get me interested in Egyptology. I think that this murder investigation would be fascinating to see play out on the big screen.
5. "Paris, 1919" by Margaret MacMillan- I have always been fascinated and interested in the First World War- especially the politics of how it started, and how the politics of its ending helped shape the world and conflicts we see around us today. This book illustrates it all beautifully, and I think it would make a great, dramatic piece of cinematic storytelling.
So, there you have my Top Five Non-Fiction Books to Turn Into Movies. I'd also recommend reading them too!
