Synopsis

Second World War Stories for Boys by Jim Eldridge

These thrilling wartime adventures transport the reader to the heat of battle. 'Deadly Skies' sees John Smith, Spitfire pilot, in the throes of the Battle of Britain. 'Tank Attack' takes the action to the deserts of North Africa as John witnesses the Battle of El Alamein from behind a tank. 'Behind Enemy Lines' takes us forward to 1943 to the jungles of South-East Asia, as John undertakes a dangerous commando mission. Riveting fictionalized accounts, packed with historical detail, give a new immediacy to the Second World War that will enthral young male readers.
