The Boys Who Challenged Hitler by Phillip Hoose🙂🙂👍👍
The Boys Who Challenged Hitler: Knud Pedersen and the Churchill Club by Phillip Hoose is an
account of the exploits of the Churchill Club during WWII in Denmark. Knud Pedersen was 15 years old, when the Danish did not put up any resistance to Germany taking over their country. While Germany did not cause damage, they sent in many soldiers and
forced the country to follow German rules. Knud, his brother Jens and some friends began a club of saboteurs. On their bikes with little knowledge but lots of bravery they rearranged signs, cut wires, blew up vehicles and other ways to make life harder
for the Germans.
The book is written with direct memories of Knud Pedersen, pictures and news accounts. The information is incredible and
is written in such a way that student’s attention is gained and kept. The book introduces so much information about WWII with the German invasions.
This book is an amazing read for Middle Schoolers. It allows the students to see how much can be accomplished by those who are dedicated and determined. I found the books chapters a little long, but the students didn’t
seem to find the same issue. The Boys Who Challenged Hitler by Phillip Hoose is a special read for many students.
