    The Soldiers That Ski I am reviewing Phantoms in the Snow by Kat

    The Soldiers That Ski
    I am reviewing Phantoms in the Snow by Kathleen Benner Duble. This book is about Noah, a 15 year old sent to Camp Hale after his parents die in 1944 to live with his uncle. His uncle is part of the military 86th Ski Division. Noah was raised on a farm and to be a pacifist. With the war going on moving to a military base was not where he wanted to go. I thought this book would like this book because I’m interested in WII and I wasn’t disappointed.
    In the beginning, his uncle doesn’t seem to be very nice and there is some tension between the two of them. Noah lies to his uncle and tells him he is 16. He really doesn’t want to be there because his uncle is making him go through training like the rest of the guys, and its hard work. I wouldn’t want to be there either.
    Eventually, Noah makes friends and starts to like living there. There is a pretty funny part where they go to a hotel for the night and repeal from the top floor in the morning. What happens will make you laugh.

    While at a 3 week training camp Noah encounters a blizzard, training battles, and they hear of a downed pilot. He is told the pilot is not going to live. Upon his return from training Noah finds out his uncle is missing. He thinks his uncle has gone for the pilot. He is worried. At this point I don’t want to put the book down….can’t wait to find out what happens to the uncle.
    Eventually Noah’s views war change and he joins the military. Once all his training is complete he is sent to Italy. His troop goes out on scouting missions that lead up to a final assault. I didn’t relate a lot to Noah because he lived on a farm and I couldn’t imagine doing all that training. I did like him as a character though. A lot of the time he was confused and I can relate to that. I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it to others.

    Great book about a boy coming of age. Also interesting to learn about soldiers who train in snow/winter conditions. Highly recommend.
