Simultaneous with the attack on Pearl Harbor (in 1941) was the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong. While working in a military station, two Chinese boys assist in the war effort by securing medical supplies for the underground fighters and escaped British and American prisoners of war. This important and beautifully told story of despair and, ultimately, hope is complemented by exceptional illustrations. Ages eight to thirteen.
