Review:

"Simpson's awareness of the divisions and dilemmas of a country under foreign occupation and the injustice and ruthlessness inherent in war itself, lifts this novel beyond run of the mill heroics" (Books for Keeps)

"The book is clearly the result of considerable research and enthusiasm. This will appeal to readers of 14 upwards, particularly boys. The relationship between the two contrasting brothers is strongly conveyed through dialogue" (Sandra Bennett The School Librarian)

"This book is written with an obvious understanding of how a young boy might feel as he tries to understand the events taking place around him. He is surrounded by adults who are having to kill and who are being killed, all for a cause which he does not understand and yet which at the same time hurts and confuses him" (Marya Jansen-Gruber Through the Looking Glass)

"A terrific romp, full of car chases, explosions, stiff upper lips and U-boats; fans of films starring Bruce Willis (or David Niven) should love it" (Jo Klaces TES)

Book Description:

A gripping action-adventure tale set against the historic war-time backdrop of occupied Norway.

Book Description Random House Children's Publishers UK, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Norway, September 1943For brothers Marek and Olaf, a hunting trip out on the frozen Hardanger plateau offers a brief chance to escape the German occupation. But returning home they witness the horror of their father's arrest by the Gestapo and the start of a brutal regime under the evil Lieutenant Wold. When their daring plan for revenge goes horribly wrong, they are forced to seek refuge in the vast and unforgiving Norwegian wilderness.Saved from an icy grave by Resistance freedom-fighters, fourteen-year-old Marek is captivated by their courage and determination. He may not be a crack shot like his brother, but he is quick-thinking, resourceful and a talented mechanic. With youth on his side, the Germans probably won't suspect him - perfect for a part in the ambitious sabotage attack planned by the group. But can he keep his nerve, especially when the final assault throws his friends and family into the path of the enemy?. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780552555715
