Synopsis

Late summer, 1940.

Hitler has conquered France. Now he intends to cross the Channel and defeat Britain before winter arrives.

A group of young refugees led by British spy Charles Henderson faces a stark choice. To head south into the safety of neutral Spain, or go north on a risky mission to sabotage the German invasion plans.

For official purposes, these children do not exist.

'Muchamore's plain, punchy,often funny style ... is highly effective. This clever, tense novel is a great way of getting bored boys interested in history.' (The Escape)

Amanda Craig, The Times

A thrilling page turner you won't want to put down

Western Mail

'It has the feel of something quite big and satisfying...Muchamore's voice is fresh and direct.' (The Escape)
