It may be in an American's point of view, but it is clear that it was to show how much the French Resistance worked during WWII. The book is following a young American farm boy by the name of Henry Forrester who is the youngest pilot around.

It may be in an American's point of view, but it is clear that it was to show how much the French Resistance worked during WWII. He spends most all the book on solid ground hiding from Nazi soldiers after his plane crashes.

And Henry finds himself in the thick of Nazi occupied France, where there is distrust and secrets at every turn. Through all the hiding, all the secrets, all the torture and waiting Henry can only keep sane by memories of home and the hope that one day he may go back.

I read this book to help with my son's high school English assignment. It's targeted to a teen or young adult audience, and tells a good story about an American bomber pilot who is shot down over Alsace during World War II.

The book details his struggle to return to freedom, aided by a series of sincere local sympathizers and members of the French resistance movement. The read this book to help with my son's high school English assignment.

It's targeted to a teen or young adult audience, and tells a good story about an American bomber pilot who is shot down over Alsace during World War II. The book details his struggle to return to freedom, aided by a series of sincere local sympathizers and members of the French resistance movement.

The purpose of the novel seems to be to celebrate and recognize acts of kindness and heroism in the midst of the struggles of conflict. The story of a young Virginian pilot shot down during WW2 and his experiences while he tried to make it back to Allied territory.

Through the eyes of Henry Forrester, average American teenager, readers of Under a WarTornSky are taken up into the skies over Europe and deep into the trenches of the French Resistance during World War II. Readers of any age can learn about the heart-wrenching experiences of this young bomber pilot and be captivated by his story. The author created this fictional story based on the first hand.

The author created this fictional story based on the first-hand accounts of her own father and his friends.

The gritty truth of running from the Nazi's is presented realistically while still being appropriate for younger readers. In fact, I feel that many of them would benefit from understanding what people their age went through and are capable of.

There is little that Henry Forrester does not go through from the time his plane is shot down over German occupied France. He meets amazing people, loses friends, has to make impossible choices, and is forced to keep moving without the opportunity to discover whether those who dare to help him live or die.

Henry himself is a somewhat naive Virginia farm boy, who is quickly hardened by what he experiences. He struggles to live by the principles that he has been raised by in the face of inhuman cruelty.

In him, it is easy to see millions of young men just like him, many of whom never made it home. Since my grandfather was a pilot in WWII, I appreciate and enjoy stories like this that bring to life the daily hardships and concerns of men that weren't expected to live for more than 16 missions.

I would also recommend And Some Fell on Stony Ground as a somewhat deeper look into the mind of an RAF pilot. Tense YA action/adventure story about downed World War II American pilot and the civilians of the French Resistance who risk all to save him.

The young main character works through some old hurts from his father as he spends his days hiding, fearing, fighting. When Henry's plane is shot down behind enemy lines during WWII, he must depend on the help of strangers to try and make his way to safety.

I have always enjoyed learning about WWII, so this book was a good way of getting into the mind of a soldier. By the end, Henry remains good-hearted, but he has seen the worst in people.

By the end, Henry remains good-hearted, but he has seen the worst in people. When I was in high school, I got to go to France with my great uncle who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day during WWII.

I have always had enormous respect for the soldiers of that war and everything they went through, and this book reinforced and strengthened that feeling. However, it was kind of fun to try and figure out what they were saying based on context clues and what the words looked like.

I think it allows the reader to see how difficult it was for Henry when he knew no German and only a little of French. HOWEVER, unfortunately there are inappropriate allusions in this book which make it absolutely unfit for younger readers.

The author wanted to present the reality of the situation Another good fictional World War 2 story! HOWEVER, unfortunately there are inappropriate allusions in this book which make it absolutely unfit for younger readers.

The author wanted to present the reality of the situation a pure-minded young farm boy would experience when thrown into the army with men of lesser moral standards. Thus, the author included crude jokes and allusions not only once, but several times.

I'm glad to have read this shortly after I read The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah as this book is about an American B-24 pilot who ends up in Nazi occupied France and receives assistance from the French Resistance.

I really liked the main character, young and idealistic Henry, a farm boy from Virginia. As the story progressed, I saw a lot of growth in his character as he goes through many trials on his journey to freedom.

He is then supposed to be brought to a Swiss POW camp, but he escapes the train with the help of a member of the French resistance. She lives in a spacious mansion, but must sell her heirlooms for money.

She lives in a spacious mansion, but must sell her heirlooms for money. He joins a maquis' resistance group, where he meets his friend Billy, who was also shot down the same day as Henry.

The Gestapo use water torture, attempting to get the names and whereabouts of the resistance members. Henry manages to tame the dog and attempts to escape, but is caught.

Then one day, he meets a girl called Claudette, who takes him to a maquis' resistance group. Claudette carries a deep hatred for the Germans, and vows to kill them all.

Henry likes her, and doesn’t know why until he realized that she reminds him of his love interest Patsy, back in the states. One day, the group receives word that Paris has been reached by allied forces.

On the way, Henry sees Germans, and must distract them while Claudette flees. Henry then finds Americans and gets back to his home in time for thanksgiving dinner.

I wasn’t crazy about Henry’s character at all at first, but it was interesting to watch him grow, learn, and mature, and by the end I really liked him. My 8th graders have LOVED this book and enjoyed learning about WWII via the main character's experiences.

I chose this particular novel because I thought it might be useful for a project I'm doing on youth in times of war (Annie Between the States also sounded interesting, but at 544 pages it was a bit long to add to my current reading list).

It reminded me of many people who I have met on trips and the feeling when we parted that we would never see each other again. But of course, the feeling Henry would have had there been so much more intense, because death was waiting around the corner for everyone.

He must survive as he makes his way guided by Resistance workers, learning much about evil, violence, goodness, and living. I was prompted to read this after seeing Laura Elliott speak at school, where I work.

Fast-moving action and tense situations make this a good title to recommend to boys. Granted, there were parts that were a teensy bit ok/exciting, but overall this is a boring story (even put me to sleep at one point), not to mention there's a lot of misuses of the Lord's name, and a few inappropriate hints.

It will shock you, and you won't want a thing to do with fighting after reading this. It was a fascinating story, a gripping tale.

Second the plane he is flying gets shot at and catches on fire, so he gets off track and loses his team. Also, Henry feels like he might have broken his ankle with the wreck from the plane, which isn't a good thing.

In all honesty these are just a couple of reasons I like this book, Henry is such a strong man and willing to do what he needs to. Most people when forced to do something you don’t want to do start to freak out, Henry on the other hand stays calm and collective as he should be.

Henry is not as big as most people in the war, but he is not scared to put his fist up to back someone down weather or not he will get his butt whooped or not. Henry, the most brave one, goers to find food when he has none, but gets caught while doing so.

Although Henry might be brave, he makes connections with people way to quick. But in I place or spot that Henry was in, I'm not sure if I would want to be getting to close to people that I'm not real familiar with.

Henry lives down in Virginia and works on his parents farm and is sweet on a girl named Patsy, who he thinks of often to get through his toughest moments. L. M Elliot does an amazing job setting the tone for the rest of the story in the first couple pages.

Henry’s nightmare foreshadows that the rest of the book is not going to be censored or tamed. Henry now finds himself unarmed, and in the middle of a raging war with a severely injured foot.

Henry will see friend and foe alike, and will go through the horrors of war. While I can’t spoil anything for you, L. M Elliot does an amazing job of capturing the setting and telling the story so that you’re on the edge of your seat every time Henry meets a new person.

But, once the two go through real war together, they stop their childish bickering and start acting like brothers. As for the storytelling element you really feel for Henry whenever he encounters someone new, you find yourself wondering if the shadow in the distance is friend or foe.

The book is filled with moments of suspense that make you want to turn to the next page, which is a nice refresher. Concluding comments- Overall an incredible book, keeps you on the edge of your seat almost throughout the entire story and really teaches you about the horrors of war.

He ends up getting shot down on one of his missions and then has to find his way back home through France (which was controlled by Germany at this time). I liked how it was very realistic in the way that not all the people that the main character, Henry, met had a good ending.

This makes it more realistic, and it is more historically correct because in WW2 there were many people who lost their lives behind the scenes and not just on the front lines. A history book might not necessarily put a lot of emphasis on the people that worked behind enemy lines in the wars, but they played a very important role in WW2.

However, in my mind this book didn't get 5 stars because it would have been nice to see a little less romanticism about him and his girlfriend and the time on his farm back home. I know that Henry would have been longing to go home and see his girlfriend, but I just feel like the author kept on repeating himself over and over about the same things.

However, other than this I would have given the book a five stare rating because it was packed with excitement and action through every chapter and every page. The beginning of this book is something you do not want to miss because it basically sets you up for the rest of the story.

The beginning of this book is something you do not want to miss because it basically sets you up for the rest of the story. This brings me to my next point which is that I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in Historical Fiction in general, and more specifically about World War II.

In conclusion, I would definitely recommend this book for people who already have some knowledge about Historic times, more specifically World War II OR for people who want to learn more about Historic times, as in this case World War II.
