Outrunning the Nazis: The Brave Escape of Resistance Fighter Sven Somme - NEW!
While taking undercover pictures of Nazi submarines and equipment, Sven Somme was captured and doomed to be executed for spying. A fisheries officer before joining the resistance, the 40-year-old Norwegian managed not only to escape imprisonment but also avoid 900 Nazis and bloodhounds. Sven traveled for 200 miles across Norway, at times leaping from tree to tree to avoid leaving tracks in the snow.
Opening and closing with a brief chapter of text, the body of Outrunning the Nazis is in the form of action-packed graphics making the story more accessible for reluctant readers.
Outrunning the Nazis is the true story of one man’s bravery, ingenuity, and daring determination. Because of the content, Outrunning the Nazis may be best suited for readers ages 9 to 12 years.
