  • "Chas McGill, who's already got a fair-sized collection of scavenged World War II souvenirs, has just found the greatest prize of his young life. It's a machine gun, still attached to a Nazi fighter plane downed in the woods of Northern England."
  • "Ce récit de 1975 est largement autobiographique et s'inspire d'épisodes authentiques qu'a vécus l'auteur à l'âge de douze ans comme son héros lors de l'hiver 1940-41 quand sur la côte anglaise on s'attendait à voir débarquer les Allemands. Très bonne psychologie enfantine qui en fait un livre charmant et plausible."
  • "Réédition. Volume publié en 1978 dans la collection ##Bel oranger## aux Editions Stock. Les combats aériens font rage au-dessus de l'Angleterre: les bombes explosent, les avions s'écrasent. Les hommes font la guerre et les enfants se prennent à ce jeu. Ils collectionnent les trophées: empennages de bombe, morceaux d'obus, etc. Chassy a trouvé une mitrailleuse en état de marche sur un Heinkel. Ses camarades se regroupent autour de lui pour entreprendre leur guerre. Ce roman, écrit dans un style alerte, est empreint d'authenticité et les personnages, décrits avec réalisme."

  • "Set during the Second World War. Chas McGill desperately wanted his war souvenir collection to be the best. His chance came when he found the crashed German Heinkel, with a machine-gun and all its ammunition intact; all he had to do was to remove it from the plane."
  • "Its 1940, and Britain is at war. Young Chas McGill has the second-best collection of war souvenirs in town, but desperately wants it to be the best. Amidst the bombs and air raids, Chas and his friends plan their own war effort in their newly built bunker. Friendships are forged and loyalties tested, in the adventure of a lifetime."@en
