A fascinating new perspective on World War II; a fictitious, personalized take on the real-life rebel German youth group.
Karl Friedman is only twelve, but like all boys his age in Germany, hes already playing war games, training to join the Hitler Youth. Stefan, Karls non-conformist older brother, wants nothing to do with it. Then their father is killed, and what had been a game suddenly becomes deadly serious.
Karls faith in the Fuhrer is shaken: Is Hitler a national hero or a villain? What is the meaning of the flower symbol stitched inside Stefans jacket, and what is the mission of the shadow group he belongs to? Karl soon finds out as he joins his brother in a dangerous rebellion against the burgeoning threat of Nazism.
