Publisher's Summary

Spencer Morgan and Dieter Hedrick are on opposite sides of the war and fighting for the same thing.

At the age of 15, Dieter's blind devotion gets him promoted from Hitler Youth into the German army. Dieter's determined to prove his allegiance and bravery all costs.

Spence, just 16, drops out of his Utah high school to begin training as a paratrooper. He's seen how boys who weren't much in high school can come home heroes, and Spence wants to prove to his friends and family that he really can be something.

Their worst fear was that the war would end too soon - that they wouldn't get the chance to prove themselves. But when they finally see the action they were hoping for, it's like nothing they could have ever imagined.

Poor Narration

The story was well written but the reader paused in all the wrong places, breaking up sentences. That was disappointing.

WW2 Coming of Age Drama

God, this is just such a perfect book.

I listened to the book all the way through in one sitting. I couldn't bring myself to stop.
