"The true story of a group of boy resistance fighters in Denmark after the Nazi invasion"--"At the outset of World War II, Denmark did not resist German occupation. Deeply ashamed of his nation's leaders, fifteen-year-old Knud Pedersen resolved with his brother and a handful of schoolmates to take action against the Nazis if the adults would not. Naming their secret club after the fiery British leader, the young patriots in the Churchill Club committed countless acts of sabotage, infuriating the Germans, who eventually had the boys tracked down and arrested. But their efforts were not in vain: the boys' exploits and eventual imprisonment helped spark a full-blown Danish resistance. Interweaving his own narrative with the recollections of Knud himself, here is Phil Hoose's inspiring story of these young war heroes"--… (més)

children's nonfiction (Danish teens sabotage Nazi operations in occupied Denmark, then go to jail). I'm glad this story was told, but that was it--basically an 89-year-old's recollections of what he and his colleagues did in the 1940s. I feel like there could've been a lot more (like if Steve Sheinkin started digging into it, he could've wrote more about what the Danes knew about Nazis as opposed to those who were in denial about what they were doing and more about the other rebel activity after the Churchill Club was jailed, etc.) but I am glad that this story did get told before all the teens in questions passed away. So maybe not the most outstanding kids' nonfic I've read this year, but a good addition to a library collection, particularly for those younger readers who are interested in Anne Frank, etc.. ( )

This shows kids taking charge and standing up for what is right . It takes place during World War II in Denmark , a group of young boys form a club to take matters into their own hands since parents wont to take down Nazis. Eventually their action are heard of by the Germans and they are arrested however, that is not the end for the boys. This book would connect when learning about World War II and the dangers that came with it. ( )

The story of the Churchill Club, a group of teenage resistance fighters from Denmark, is told through a first hand account of Knud Petersen, a surviving member of the Churchill Club, and supplemented by background history and information by author Phillip Hoose. The Germans occupy Denmark in a single day on April 9, 1944. While Norway fought and resisted the occupation, the Danes didn't put up a fight. The Churchill Club, proudly named after Prime Minister Churchill who was leading the fight against the Nazis, was a group of school aged boys who become the first resistance fighters in Denmark. ( )

Can I just say that historical fiction is so underrated? The writer, Philip Hoose, brings attention to an unfamiliar group that attacks the Nazis in their hometown. The Churchill Club features young men with undaunting and courageous behavior as they plant bombs and traps in the routes and camps of the invaders. The unwavering Knud Pederson, also known as the founder of the Churchill Club, leads the group through treacherous times with words of encouragement and a sense of Danish pride throughout the entire novel. The characters overall help provide the readers with a vivid description of the hardships and challenges families faced during these dark times.

Can I just say that historical fiction is so underrated? The writer, Philip Hoose, highlights a group of boys that is unfamiliar in history classes and other archival novels. Hoose portrays the Churchill Club as determined and undaunting in the mission to take down the Nazis in their area. As Hitler's forces become stronger, the young men just become braver and more heroic Overall, this novel brings to life the hardships and situations of the people faced during World War 2.
