In the occupation of demark During WWII Danish highs school boys get to gather and try to vandalize German things like license plates and German posters. But everything had changed when they found a stolen Lugar. Now, instead of stealing soldiers' caps and puncturing the Germans' tires, the boys raid an airfield building Not everyone agrees with the new course of action. When they steal explosives and plot to destroy a German arms train, Gunner¿s lifelong friend abandons the group. The train is destroyed, but the boys are caught and all but Otto was arrested.
A great book with planing and action. The group doesn't do anything to serious until otto joins. Then it starts to get into alot of action in missions. In times it can get really confusing but in a paragraph or two you'll understand what was going on.
