At the outset of global struggle II, Denmark didn't withstand German career. Deeply ashamed of his nation's leaders, fifteen-year-old Knud Pedersen resolved along with his brother and a handful of schoolmates to do so opposed to the Nazis if the adults wouldn't. Naming their mystery membership after the fiery British chief, the younger patriots within the Churchill membership dedicated numerous acts of sabotage, infuriating the Germans, who finally had the men tracked down and arrested. yet their efforts weren't in useless: the men' exploits and eventual imprisonment helped spark a full-blown Danish resistance. Interweaving his personal narrative with the reminiscences of Knud himself, this is Phillip Hoose's inspiring tale of those younger battle heroes.
