Okay, this one is a modern classic. Written in 1959. I bought a copy to replace the ragged copy in the library and thought...I should read this. I enjoyed this book quite a bit. A story about boys at a boarding school getting into mischief. And, as mischief sometimes goes, someone gets hurt. The story takes place just as the boys are turning of age to enter WW2. But, it looks like the war will end before the boys are sent off to fight.
