Review: Hitler's Secret by William Osborne

I received this galley in exchange for an honest review.

Otto and Leni thought they were safe: They escaped -- barely -- from war-torn Europe and are living as refugees in England. But now the Crown has recruited them: Great Britain wants them to go back. As spies!

Dropped behind enemy lines, Otto and Leni embark on a top-secret operation. Code name: Wolfsangel. Their mission? Capture the one person who can defeat the ultimate evil of Nazism! Der Fuhrer has destroyed Otto's and Leni's families, but what if the tables were turned? What if Hitler's ultimate legacy was in their hands?

Breathless pacing, nonstop action: By the screenwriter of Goldeneye, HITLER'S SECRET is a cinematic tale of revenge with an unexpected twist. A note by the author explains the truth behind the fiction and lets readers know what really became of history's greatest villains.

I try to read as many books as I can that is set during the 1940's. It is one of my favorite time periods. When I saw Hitler's Secret on netgalley, I knew I had to read it. It is definitely a read that many middle graders would enjoy!

Both Otto and Leni escaped a Nazi Germany. While in Great Britain, they are both asked to go back so they can be spies. Their job is to find the one thing that can help the Allies win the war. I wasn't a fan of Otto. I never felt a connection to him, and I didn't like his personality. Leni was a cool girl though. She was strong, and I admired her.

While I didn't enjoy the story as much as I was hoping I would, I think young children and teenagers will find Hitler's Secret an action packed story, especially for the ones who love history. But I think even if you hate learning or reading about history, you can enjoy this one!
