An unsentimental, fast paced tale of an eleven-year-old fending for himself during the WWII Occupation of Holland.
Experience with Fred, the raging Battle of Arnhem, near misses with the Gestapo, living in a chicken coop, a mad dash across no-man's land, all the while moving between twenty-six hiding places to stay out of Nazi hands.
Fred's life-like reportage of his war memories touches veterans, modern day readers and young people alike.
