Hitler’s Angel by William Osborne
|Hitler's Angel - William Osborne|
Hitler’s Angel is about a girl (Leni) and a boy (Otto) who have been asked to go back to Germany and kidnap a girl (Angelika) to try and take down Hitler. The story starts in 1940. Angelika is on a small island in the middle of a lake. Otto and Leni have to try and get to the lake without the Nazis tracking them.
I really enjoyed the book. It is a book that I have never really ever come across – the whole concept of the story where they have to try and kidnap a girl.
My favourite character was Leni. She was brave and I didn’t think a girl would be that brave. I thought only men went out and did missions during the war.
I would describe this book as a sad and daring adventure story. I cried in some parts but giggled in others.
I don’t think they should take this out but I didn’t like the part where Britain wanted a nine year old girl from Germany to destroy Hitler because her life would be wanted by Germany and Britain. I didn’t like this part because she was only nine year’s old and her life had only just started.
There was quite a bit of violence as you could guess (World War II). There were gunshots and lots of guns and a teeny bit of gore.
I would recommend this book to readers who like stories about World War II, readers who like adventure and readers who like army type of things. It’s my type of book because I like things about the wars.
