War stories / Gordon Korman.

Korman, Gordon, (author.).


Twelve-year-old Trevor Firestone loves playing war-based video games and he idolizes his great-grandfather Jacob who came home from World War II a celebrated hero; now ninety-three-year-old Jacob wants to retrace his journey in memory and reality and return to the small French village that his unit liberated, and Trevor is going with him -- but not everyone in the town wants Jacob to come, and Trevor is going to learn an important lesson: real war is not a video game, and valor and heroism can be very murky concepts.
