Their two boys, Finn and Loki, are also best friends. He becomes a Spitfire pilot and dies in battle. The book finishes on a cliff-hanger, as they escape to England. At first presumed to be German spies, they are then revealed for who they really are.
Definitely a good book for the young to read will keep them interested and learn along the way what it was like in the war for kids and adults alike the things they went through and that loose tongues got people killed or in prison. By the end of the war, the underpowered machines from just ten years prior had been transformed into fairly powerful, swift, and heavily armed fighter planes, and the basic tactics for dogfighting had been laid down. Air Force 's F Super Sabre , which each mounted four 20 mm cannons, jets were not designed for dog fighting other jet aircraft. Here come the SAMs. However, first in series Special Operations: India claimed large gains of territory in West Pakistan although pre-war boundaries were recognised after the war , and the independence of Pakistan's East wing as Bangladesh was confirmed. If you dodge too fast it will turn and catch you; if you wait too late it will explode near enough to get you.
Definitely young adult reading - not for younger readers. Oct 02, susan murray rated it it was amazing.

Some might dismiss Dogfight as 'just a kids book', but for that, it was very, very good. Full of adventure and excitement, there's not a dull moment that lets the book put itself down.
There's a fair bit of grit and realism which is refreshing boys especially I think would enjoy this book because of it , with the token deaths added as well. Some nice twists and turns too, showing how the 'bad guy' isn't always who you think he is.
Oct 21, Suzie Bookgirl rated it really liked it Shelves: World War II is raging as Finn's father flies off to join the resistance. Six months later Finn's dad is dead and the Nazis have invaded Norway. It is a confusing time when nobody knows who is on whose side and it is never safe. Finn treats the whole thing as a bit of a lark until he is arrested and spends time in the Nazi fortress where he witnesses terrible things and realises the real dangers of the war.
After that he is keen to join the resistance and make a difference for his village. He gets himself into far more than he ever bargained for. This was an action packed adventure. An easy read that I did not want to put down. Jan 04, Hayley rated it really liked it.
