Summary
  • "The true story of a group of boy resistance fighters in Denmark after the Nazi invasion"--
  • "At the outset of World War II, Denmark did not resist German occupation. Deeply ashamed of his nation's leaders, fifteen-year-old Knud Pedersen resolved with his brother and a handful of schoolmates to take action against the Nazis if the adults would not.
