In a small town called Otterbury, just after the Second World War, two gangs of boys "wage war" against each other – using WWII terms. But when one of the "army's" ranks breaks a school window, the two gangs join together to try to get enough money to pay for it. Enough money is scraped together by the group – but it is stolen...
A good, clean, fun adventure story. Excellent.
