Call of the AlliesGrades: 0L-200L
By Bruce Franchi
D-Day was one of the most ambitious complex military operations of all time, and Call of the Allies presents three perspectives that each illuminate a different aspect of the event. There’s Jimmy, a young recruit who finds himself landing on Normandy Beach. There’s Frank, a paratrooper tasked with dropping behind enemy lines from above. Then there’s Sofi, a rebellious orphan given the chance to join the underground Resistance in Nazi-occupied Paris. Call of the Allies lets readers choose which character to follow, but regardless of who they choose, their decisions along the way could lead to success or failure for the Allied nations.
