The Boys Who Challenged Hitler by Phillip Hoose

 

9780374300227

This is one of those great history books that reads like an adventure story.  Like the Port Chicago 50, it’s a piece of the past I had no idea about.  The author does a great job of blending reflections of Knud Peterson (one of the actual Boys) with details of the war.  It’s like a mix of newspaper articles and live interviews.  Kids who watch the History Channel will feel right at home with this book.
