Product description

Jack canʼt wait for the school trip to the D-Day landing beaches. Itʼs his chance to learn more about the war heroes he’s always admired – brave men like his dad, who is a Reserve soldier. But when his dad is called up for action and things at home spiral out of control, Jack’s beliefs about war are thrown into question. Finding comfort in his loyal dog Finn, Jack is drawn to the true story of one particular D-Day paratrooper. On 6 June 1944, Emile Corteil parachuted into France with his dog, Glen. What happened next? Can Jack discover their fate?
