The classic tale of a journey through war-torn Europe.

Alone and fending for themselves in a Poland devastated by World War Two, Jan and his three homeless friends cling to the silver sword as a symbol of hope. As they travel through Europe towards Switzerland, where they believe they will be reunited with their parents, they encounter many hardships and dangers. This extraordinarily moving account of an epic journey gives a remarkable insight into the reality of a Europe laid waste by war.

From 11 February to 30 October 2011, The Silver Sword will feature as one of five books in the Imperial War Museum exhibition Once Upon A Wartime: Classic War Stories for Children.

    " This is an excellent book which portrays the everyday struggles and challenges that many people faced in WW2. I like the perspective it gives because it is primarily about children. "

    " When my mummy read the first chapter to me I said "the hairs on the back of my neck are standing up I'm so exited".The story is all a bit sad especialy when the animals die but you quickly forget it over all the exitement.But still it's a happy ending. "

    " The Balicki family of Warsaw was forcibly separated as World War II raged. In 1942, the children, Ruth, Edek and Bronia are left vulnerable and alone to fend for themselves in a suddenly unfamiliar and threatening world. The force that drives them is the dream of reunion with their parents. Jan, a wild urchin, provides an improbable link between the divided Balicki family members. A fictional account based upon true events inspires readers through the enduring hope, valor and strength of will of its young protagonists. "
