E who help him along the way Through his journey Henry gains an understanding of the French and their struggle; and of his own place in a war that will change the face of Europe foreve Another good fictional world war 2 story This one is excellent and suitable for a variety of ages Although exciting there is nothing to violent or gruesome for younger readers even age 8 HOWEVER unfortunately there are inappropriate allusions in this book which make it absolutely unfit for younger readers As an adult I found certain things in this book oddly unnecessary and not in keeping with the otherwise family friendly book The author wanted to present the reality of the situation a pure minded young farm boy would experience when thrown into the army with men of lesser moral standards Thus the author included crude jokes and allusions not only once but several times This is not appropriate for younger readers and I recommend reading aloud or skipping this book I did like the story especially because it centered around the French resistance There was a good amount of French in this book which I enjoyed reading note for those who don't know French each time the situation or conversation is explained
