No longer safe in Switzerland, twelve-year-old Hans, his father and younger sister are pursued by the Nazis from Switzerland into France. They change their names to throw off the relentless pursuit of the Nazis. The family becomes involved in a daring rescue that could save France, their homeland--maybe even the free world, as they help the locals resist the Germans and rescue a downed American pilot. But the enemy covets the prize, forcing the three heroes and their friends into harrowing chases and narrow escapes. Recommended for ages 9 to 12.
