The Boys from St. Petri

By Bjarne Reuter, Anthea Bell (Translator)

It is 1942, and Germany has occupied Denmark. A group of teenage boys dare to do what their elders have not—show resistance to their Nazi invaders. At first just childish pranks, the boys' tactics become deadly earnest and increasingly dangerous.
