“The last year of Dutch resistance against Nazi oppression is vividly described. Children and adult will strongly identify with the main characters in this series Pages will alternately move readers from depths of despair into heroic deeds.
The climax of the story lies, first of all, not in men’s abilities, but in their fallibility, which literally throws them to God. The main characters, you see, are Christians who are able to witness. They are men of conviction, passing on their love of God to their children and others. They are men who, with God’s help, know how to live and die…The factual history presented through this story makes this series a good teaching tool. Be sure to present your child with a good map, however, when he/she begins to read. It will certainly add to the reality of the battles fought. These books also bridge the generation gap. Today’s grandfathers literally lived these small volumes. These books are heartily recommended.” – Christine Farenhorst
