Allies AUTHOR Alan Gratz Read Ø 104 A New York Times bestsellerAlan Gratz bestselling author of Refugee weaves a stunning array of voices and stories into an epic tale of teamwork in the face of tyranny and how just one day can change the worldJune 6 1944 The Nazis are terrorizing Europe on their evil uest to conuer the world The only way to stop them The biggest most top secret operation. Having done several previous successful junior novels about World War II Alan Gratz released Allies in 2019 taking us into the heat of battle on June 6 1944 at Normandy Through the eyes of a cast of characters ranging from civilians to soldiers spies to medics we witness the twenty four hours that turned the tide of war against Adolf Hitler s Nazi Germany The story begins with Dee Carpenter his boisterous friend Sid Jacobstein and their brigade of fellow American soldiers traveling by boat to Normandy Dee and Sid are antsy to plunge into the action and punish some Nazis but Dee has a secret his real name is Dietrich Zimmerman a born and raised German His parents uncomfortable with the F hrer s ethnic nationalism left Germany for the United States when Dee was five years old Now sixteen he enlisted in the US military under an assumed name hoping his comrades won t discover his origins Would any of them regard him as an ally if they find out he s a kraut In a uiet village of German occupied France eleven year old Samira Zidane and her mother are on a mission for the French Resistance Algerian by nationality they hope to oust Hitler so they can concentrate on earning Algeria s independence from France after the war Samira s father is dead a victim of the F hrer s backlash against political dissenters but Samira and her mother s defiance of Nazi tyranny burns brighter than ever Samira suddenly faces the prospect of losing a second parent when German soldiers abduct her mother planning to execute her as part of a mass punitive gleaning at the commune of Bayeux Frantic Samira teams up with a network of anti Nazi forces to stymie the Germans until the Allies attack Normandy She can only pray her mother won t be another casualty in the war against fascism Every few chapters the narrative shifts between points of view as Allies and allies band together against the German war machine There s nineteen year old Lance Corporal James McKay of Canada a parachuter about to leap from a plane into Nazi territory He and his Cree Indian friend Sam Tremblay know they likely won t survive D Day but they refuse to let Naziism spread across the Atlantic to Canada not while they re alive to oppose it An extended portion of Allies chronicles their adventure after parachuting into Germany as support troops for the Normandy invasion Elsewhere we meet Private Bill Richards a nineteen year old ready to storm the beaches as part of a company of Sherman tanks Bill s tank is the Achilles a vehicle designed for modern warfare but Bill has all he can handle once he emerges at Normandy into the spray of German gunfire Bill s ultimate goal is to make it to Bayeux where his father carved his own name into a rock as a soldier in World War I but what are the odds that Bill will survive to do the same Another courageous American we meet is Corporal Henry Allen a medic who can t rest for a moment once the surge at Normandy commences and Allied bodies start to fall Henry faced plenty of discrimination back home because he s a young black man but even racist soldiers are thrilled to accept his help if they ve been shot Countless lives are saved by Henry on this fateful day Omaha Beach where many American soldiers landed at Normandy is a failed maneuver Approximately 2000 are killed The evening of June 6 after the fighting is over thirteen year old Moniue Marchand comes

Moniue ministers to the tortured young men forgoing rest and nourishment to save as many as possible Moniue wants to be a nurse or doctor when she grows up and tending the wounded at Normandy is a severe test of her commitment The lives of all these main characters intersect for prolonged periods or fleeting interactions that will barely be remembered but the story circles back to where it began with Dee and Sid their lives now dramatically different than before the day s tribulation at Normandy If the world is saved from Hitler will other problems fade too or is life always defined by hardships The young people who survive D Day have decades to mull over these uestions in a world almost ready to begin recovering from one of the most traumatic periods in human history Much of Allies takes place on the front lines of war but the effect is surprisingly subdued I never felt immersed as though I were experiencing combat in person it felt like a story retold at a great distance More comfortable yes but Allies is less memorable for its lack of intensity Even main characters die though so nobody in the story is safe military combat is a melee of randomness We see this reality in Dee s thoughts as he prepares to dash through a hazard zone praying that German guns won t fire on him Who lived through this hell and who died and why Was it veteran experience Divine providence Dumb luck There s virtually no order to be discerned from individual outcomes of soldiers in battle and surviving to resume civilian life often is a mixed blessing I would consider rating Allies two and a
