"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"--… (mer)

Eventually their action are heard of by the Germans and they are arrested however, that is not the end for the boys.

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.

It was the dawn of April 9th, 1940 when the Germans invaded Denmark. They used a merchant ship to get to the Danish capital of Copenhagen. When the Germans arrived at the capitol, King Christian X surrendered to the Germans. In a small town of Odense, Knud Pedersen and his friends didn't like how the government didn't fight the German invasion. So they took matters in their own hands. Their first "attack" as the RAF (Royal Air Force) club was just ruining signs and painting their symbol on German roadsters or cars. Their attacks then turned into burning German vehicles and even stealing weapons. In the end the club was caught and was thrown in jail, but they still helped take down Hitler and give hope to the oppressed.

This was one of my favorite books I have read so far this year. The format of this book was a split between what happened in Knud's eyes and how history remembers it. When I read this book, it shocked me how a few kids could do so much to a what seemed like a unbeatable army. All the things that happened in the book were actual events during World War II. The only thing that could have been better about this book, is it could've been longer so the story could be more detailed. Also the author could've added more to how the club got caught. Other than that I would recommend this book to kids in fifth grade and older. ( )

This book is about a "club" (I'm sure it's not a club, it probably has a more accurate name), but what its basically about is Adolf Hitler (dictator of Germany at the time) who invaded Denmark. Denmark basically didn't resist at all because, well their army was weak, so naturally Germany just walked right in. The elders did absolutely nothing, the young (as in teenagers and people around that age) got mad because the elders just sat there. So a young teenager named Knid Pederson rallied up a bunch of his friends and they just started breaking things. They blew up cars and stole guns. This sparked a rebellion.

This was my favorite book that I've ever read, It really sparked my intelligence and I gained a lot of knowledge on what life was back then. In conclusion, I would DEFINITELY recommend this book to all ages. ( )

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.
