Michael O’Shaunessey is a 13 year old Irish boy living in Nazi Germany in 1943. He joins the Hitler Youth, but not to help Germany. His family are spies for the Allied powers and have been sending them secret intelligence for the past 6 years. When he meets another boy in the Hitler Youth named Fritz, he discovers a secret plan that could change the war for the Allies if he can get the blueprints.
I thought Projekt 1065 was one of the best World War II books I’ve ever read. I loved it because it kept you on your toes. Every chapter was suspenseful and there was a lot of action. The author’s writing style was nice. It wasn’t overly descriptive, but it was just enough to give you a good picture in your mind.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes history (particularly World War II) or anyone who wants to try a new genre. I was drawn to this book because I’m a total history nerd. If I see any type of history book, I will literally run to it. Although if it’s World War II, I take off like a bullet. I also was drawn to it because I’ve never read a book about a boy spying on the Germans for the Allied powers. I’ve never read a book like this before. I was hooked from the very first page. I couldn’t put it down. I honestly stayed up late just to read this book.
Overall, Projekt 1065 is fantastic and I recommend it to anyone looking for a new book to read. I give Projekt 1065 a 10/10 on a scale of 0-10.
