The Boys Who Challenged Hitler by Phillip Hoose

A group of teenage boys in Denmark created the Churchill Club. Their purpose was to sabatoge the Nazis through grafitti, destroying things, and stealing weapons. Most of the boys were eventually caught and sent to jail, but they inspired other Danes to create an underground network to undermine the Germans. The boys were brave and a bit crazy like only teenagers can be. The story is told with lots of quotes from Knud Pedersen, one of the Churchill Club leaders. It’s a pretty quick read. I highly recommend reading The Boys Who Challenged Hitler to anyone teenager and up who is interested in World War II.
