When Nazi soldiers discovered his brother in hiding, guilt overwhelmed Michael - his brother's capture was surely his fault, another reason for his father's displeasure. Desperation and daring became Michael's new partners to salve his hurt and to gain his father's favor. But eventually, he realized compassion and bravery for the good of others was something that came naturally to him and proved a more noble motivation. Rich historical details, gripping action, and the main character's personal challenges combine for a satisfying storytelling experience.
Publisher Summary
Michael, a young French-American, watches in fear as the Nazis invade Paris, and is spurred to become part of the French Resistance movement, helping American aviators to safe zones and delivering secret documents.

When the Nazis invade Paris, Michael, a thirteen-year- old French-American, wants to be a part of the Resistance. Starting small, vandalizing Nazi propaganda and refusing to hail Hitler, Michael works his way into the full-blown Resistance, escorting American aviators to safe zones and delivering important spy documents. But when an injured pilot needs help to escape France, will Michael be brave enough to complete the mission?

With historical notes, time lines, and maps to augment the page-turning action, it's easy to see why School Library Journal says Boys of Wartime "will appeal to history buffs and reluctant readers alike."
