In this moving story about
the moral dilemmas of war, Peter feels compelled to help a wounded German
pilot, but he doesn’t want to be a traitor—especially not to his father, who is
off fighting the Nazis.
Summer, 1941. For Peter, the
war is a long way away, being fought by his father and thousands of other
British soldiers against the faceless threat of Nazism. But war comes
frighteningly close to home one night when a German jet is shot down over the
neighboring woods. With his feisty new friend Kim, Peter rushes to the crash
site to see if there’s anything he can salvage. What he finds instead is a
German airman. The enemy. Seriously wounded and in need of aid.
Continuing in the tradition
of thought-provoking literature about the Second World War, Dan Smith’s My Friend, the Enemy is a thrilling
adventure that also personalizes the moral dilemmas faced by the children left
behind on the home front. Download and start listening now!
