An extraordinary French Resistance wartime memoir, combining the best kind of adventure story with a coming of age testimony of unforgettable resonance and poignancy. September 1939, Nieppe, Northern France and 14 year-old Stephen is living with his family, 25 kilometres from Ypres. Stephen and his friend collect souvenirs from strafed convoys and crashed Messerschmitts. But their world turns dark when arrested and imprisoned for sabotage. Upon his release, and still only 16, Stephen is recruited by the French Resistance and - in a moment that haunts him still - taught how to kill.

His heroism is of the very real kind - Sunday Times
