Book description[]

"July 1943
I couldn't see the four fires, but I could smell them, the scent of burning paraffin and wood coming thickly in waves of smoke across the field. My heart started thumping again. Surely if we could smell the fires, others could as well. A German patrol would smell them for sure! Then I was aware of a large shape looming up in the night sky, its wings wide. It was the biggest thing I had ever seen. There were no lights showing on it. Down, down, down it came, lower and lower. I could hear the sound of its engine slowing and I thought with alarm, "If it goes any slower it will crash in the field, and what will we do then?"
"

"It's 1943, and after getting himself into a fight with the Nazis and landing in a police cell, Paul Lelaud is recruited into the French Resistance.
He's soon involved in life-and-death missions, smuggling British agents in and out of occupied France...
