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.
