Synopsis

Summer, 1944.

As Allied soldiers prepare to land in France, Marc and his friends must destroy a battalion of German tanks that could halt the invasion in its tracks.
The tide of war has turned against the Nazis, but desperation has made them more brutal than ever.
Henderson's Boys' final mission will be their most dangerous. With food and weapons in short supply, survival is the biggest challenge of all.

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!
