Product description

“A rousing and humane tribute to D-Day troops” - New York Times Book ReviewFrom Alan Gratz, the highly acclaimed, New York Times bestselling author of the blockbuster Refugee, comes another thrilling multi-perspective novel, this time centered around D-Day. D-Day, June 6, 1944: the most expansive military endeavor in history. No less than world cooperation would bring down Hitler and the Axis powers. And so people - and kids - across the globe lent their part. From the young US soldiers in the boats to spies in the French countryside, the coordination of thousands came together. Alan Gratz, author of the New York Times bestselling Refugee, explores the necessity of teamwork and heroism in dismantling tyranny in this epic, yet personal, look at D-Day in time for the 75th anniversary of the operation.


“Both an excellent, inclusive narration of important historical events and a fast-paced, entertaining read.” – Kirkus“A tautly paced and multifaceted portrait of the D-Day invasion.”Publishers Weekly “The stories and characters are meticulously researched, honest, and do not avoid the horror of the invasion. As well, despite the historical time setting, the issues the characters face are still timely.” – School Library Journal “Gratz manages to provide distinct, complex personalities and a nail-biting plot.” BCCB “This excellent resource will allow teachers to collaborate across both the language arts and history curriculum due to its meditative look at the global scope, outcome, and human costs of war. Highly recommended.”School Library Connection
