It's D-Day, 6th June 1944. Ten minutes after midnight. A small British force is flying over Occupied France on what is virtually a suicide mission - they must capture a bridge before German forces guarding it can blow it up. There's no room for error. They must cast fear aside in this race against time, told from both a British and German perspective. This title is published by Franklin Watts EDGE, which produces a range of books to get children reading with confidence. EDGE - for books kids can't put down.
