'YOU WANTED TO SEE SOME ACTION - WELL YOU'RE GOING TO GET IT NOW. YOU'RE GOING TO GET IT NOW ALL RIGHT.'
Friday 24th May, 1940
Private Johnny Hawke, aged sixteen, awakens to artillery fire.
Hours later, Stukas scream down from the sky. Messerschmit fighters roar towards his regiment. Trucks burst into flames.
Now men and mules lay dead and dying, severed limbs twisted grotesquely as blood soaks the cobbled streets.
Young Private Hawke just wants to do his duty and serve his country. But as he - and his fellow soldiers - prepare to stop the German advance, there's only one question on everyone's lips.
HOW WILL THEY SURVIVE?
Extremely good adventure book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and so did all of my family I would definitely advise anyone of the age of seven and up to buy this book. I would be extremely surprised if someone did not make a movie out of this. my personal favourite part is one of the first paragraphs where it states "The air was fresh and crisp after the rain,the water glinting on the grassy verges either side of the road".
