A Boy in War A Boy in War

by de Groot, Jan

When Jan is seven years of age, the Nazis attack and take over Holland. At first, not much changes. Soon, though, war starts taking things away: important things like neighbours and friends, trust and respect, even clothing, fuel, and food. Through it all, Jan is still a boy, finding ways to play with friends and paddle his sailing canoe in the canals. But he must also filch food and help protect his father's "guests" from the enemy. An exciting, touching true story of the Second World War, told by the Dutch Canadian who lived it.
