    I read this book to help with my son s high school English assignment It s targeted to a teen or young adult audience, and tells a good story about an American bomber pilot who is shot down over Alsace during World War II The book details his struggle to return to freedom, aided by a series of sincere local sympathizers and members of the French resistance movement While somewhat romanticized, it gives a behind the scenes look at the efforts of those who fought against the Nazi invaders The I read this book to help with my son s high school English assignment It s targeted to a teen or young adult audience, and tells a good story about an American bomber pilot who is shot down over Alsace during World War II The book details his struggle to return to freedom, aided by a series of sincere lo...

    When Henry s plane is shot down behind enemy lines during WWII, he must depend on the help of strangers to try and make his way to safety I have always enjoyed learning about WWII, so this book was a good way of getting into the mind of a soldier At the start of the story, Henry is idealistic and good hearted By the end, Henry remains good hearted, but he has seen the worst in people I feel like this is a good representation of what happened to many young men during that war, and all wars When Henry s plane is shot down behind enemy lines during WWII, he must depend on the help of strangers to try and make his way to safety I have always enjoyed learning about WWII, so this book was a good way of getting into the mi...

    Another good fictional world war 2 story This one is excellent and suitable for a variety of ages Although exciting, there is nothing to violent or gruesome for younger readers even age 8 HOWEVER, unfortunately there are inappropriate allusions in this book which make it absolutely unfit for younger readers As an adult, I found certain things in this book oddly unnecessary and not in keeping with the otherwise family friendly book The author wanted to present the reality of the situation Another good fictional world war 2 story This one is excellent and suitable for a variety of ages Although exciting, there is nothing to violent or gruesome for younger readers even age 8 HOWEVER, unfortunately there are inappropriate allusions in this book which make it absolutely unfit for younger readers As an adult, I found certain things in this book oddly unnecessary and not in keeping with the otherwise family friendly book The author wanted to present the reality of the situation a pure minded young farm boy would experience when thrown into the army with men of lesser moral standards Thus, the author included c...

    This is quite a powerful book Nothing is glossed over War is hell and torture and killing are part of it And then there is the amazing courage of the French Resistance fighters, from the very youngest to the elderly.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Wow I read this because the author is coming to speak in my class this week I chose this particular novel because I thought it might be useful for a project I m doing on youth in times of war Annie Between the States also sounded interesting, but at 544 pages it was a bit long to add to my current reading list I read this in one sitting The danger that Henry and his saviors faced was very vivid to me That he had to blindly trust so many people and often was left with no idea of who or wha Wow I read this because the author is coming to speak in my class this week I chose this particular novel because I thought it might be useful for a project I m doing on youth in times of war Annie Between the States also sounded interesting, but at 544 pages it was a bit long to add to my current reading list I read this in one sitting The danger that Henry and his saviors faced was very vivid to me That he had to blindly trust so many people and often was left with no idea of who or what he was supposed to be meeting was frightening, especially when the frenchman sent him walking down a path and his only directions were to take the left fork His parting with Pierre was heartbreaking It reminded me of many people who I have met on trips and the feeling when we parted that we would never see each other again But o...
