THE BOYS WHO CHALLENGED HITLER Knud Pedersen and the Churchill Club

by | Read by Phillip Hoose, Michael Braun

Young Adult Young Adult • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Hoose offers a fascinating glimpse of a little-known historical moment when a group of Danish schoolboys, infuriated by their country's lack of resistance, committed acts of sabotage to protest German occupation, ultimately inspiring their nation to act. The book alternates between passages of meticulously researched historical narrative-- read ably by the author, who masters challenging Danish names and words--and Knud Pedersen's first-person accounts, performed by Michael Braun. Listeners of all ages will be captivated by Hoose's thoughtful portrayal of courage under fire: Using only bicycles and relying on sheer nerve, the boys stole weapons and defaced Nazi property. Meanwhile, Braun's dramatic presentation of Pedersen's recollections adds an immediacy that rounds out this astonishing account of a time when a handful of brave boys helped change history.
