Purple Hearts by Michael Grant
The third and final instalment of the fast-paced alternative history series that began with Front Lines and Silver Stars. It’s 1944, and it feels to everyone like the war will never end. Rio Richlin, Frangie Marr and Rainie Shulterman have all received accolades, been ‘heroes’, earned promotion – in short, they’ve all done ‘enough’ to allow them to leave this nightmare and go home. But they don’t. D-Day, June 6th 1944. On that day, many still doubted the American soldier. By June 7th no one did.
