The pact

Book Cover
Average Rating
Red Deer Press,
Pub. Date:
This vivid historical novel follows the life of young Peter Gruber -- ten years old at the outbreak of World War Two in 1939 -- and explores how an intelligent, sensitive youth responds to the propaganda and posturing of the Nazis. It also provides insights into the realities of living in a country at war, a country that suffers increasing waves of devastation, as the tide turns against the Nazis.

The story is told through the eyes of Peter as he is drawn into the Hitler Youth and at the same time comes to doubt what he is being told about his country and its destiny.
