The second button they stole... Twelve-year-old Patryk has never left his Polish village and doesn't know muc...h about the outside world. Then one August, with the clatter-clatter of an aeroplane, the Great War explodes into his village. As the Germans and Russians fight for control, Patryk and his friends begin their own battle to find the best military button. It starts as a dare, but soon the boys find themselves trapped in a dangerous war.
