Synopsis

Spring, 1943. The war is turning against Germany, but Hitler isn't giving up. In a secret bunker deep in occupied France, scientists are hard at work on Hitler's latest deadly weapon: code name FZG-76.

Back in England Henderson's boys will need to undergo advanced sniper training if they've any chance of infiltrating the bunker. Parachuting into occupied France, they track down a secret dossier filled with invaluable material - and uncover the meaning of the enigmatic code.

For official purposes, these children do not exist.

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

Daily Telegraph

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.

Amanda Craig, The Times

This book was un-put-downable. It gripped me from start to finish, and was just as good as the CHERUB series, if not better!
