    3. Easy book to recommend if the subject makes you curious. I found it in a local "free library", thinking it was a true story (it's not). That said, it's a fun read that seems to paint a pretty accurate picture of what events were like during the period.

    4. Book ReviewIn this book the main character is a fourteen year old boy. His name is Paul Lenlaud. He just left school and now is working in his uncle’s bakery. But, when he left school, on his last day he felt so much resent at his teacher because he was a german loving person he attacked him. He went to jail for breaking his teacher’s nose. He went to jail for a little while and the good, french sergeant said he was cleared of the charges. For this act his uncle knew that this boy had spirit [...]

At the age of 14, Paul is allowed to leave school for work, but on his last day, Paul gets in a fight with his German loving teacher and was sent to jail.

    7. This entire series is a wonderful way to learn history or teach it to adolescents. I find today's generations seem to recall more when they learn through other people (pop songs, celebrity gossip, etc.), so what better way to teach history than through someone else's perspective? Yes, "authentic" diaries would be "better", but would the language really hold the modern student's attention? Did the diary writer know what WOULD be important in the context of history? Probably not.

    8. Interesting to learn about the french resistance from German occupation. Loved how there was a bakery involved. Liked how the boy sort of matured. Like reading about spies and morse code.
