Soldier Boys by Dean Hughes
Soldier boys is a book about WWII and the struggle of both sides, The Americans from Spencer’s point of view, and the Germans from Dieters point of view. Spencer is a 16 year old boy who doesn’t know what he wants to do with his life so he decides to drop out of school and go become a paratrooper. Dieter is a 15 year old German who has been in the Hitler youth sense he was a child He was just promoted and is drafted into the military and can’t wait to see battle. There worst fear would be that the war would end too soon.
I would recommend this book to anyone who like adventure and war. This book shows the struggles and obstacles two teenagers whose views are very different but also the same. They both want to return to there friends and family a hero. But one of them will not be returning.
