At the outset of World War II, Denmark did not resist German occupation. Deeply ashamed of his nation's leaders, 15-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. Their efforts were not in vain: the boys' exploits and eventual imprisonment led to a full-blown Danish resistance. In this inspiring story of the young war heroes, Phillip Hoose interweaves his own narrative with the recollections of Knud.
