By Robert Westall

The Machine Gunners is Robert Westall's gripping first novel for children set during World War Two and winner of the Carnegie Medal.

'Some bright kid's got a gun and 2000 rounds of live ammo. And that gun's no pea-shooter. It'll go through a brick wall at a quarter of a mile.' Chas McGill has the second-best collection of war souvenirs in Garmouth, and he desperately wants it to be the best.

When he stumbles across the remains of a German bomber crashed in the woods - its shiny, black machine-gun still intact - he grabs his chance. Soon he's masterminding his own war effort with dangerous and unexpected results ...

Now with a brilliant cover look celebrating its fortieth anniversary.

Includes a bonus short story - 'The Haunting of Chas McGill' - and an extended biography of the author.

A Bullseye for The Machine Gunners

First read this book about 30 years ago. Recommend by a friend who was Head of English. A Great insight into Growing Up during the Second World War. Thought it out of print , got a surprise to find it on your website. Bought for our youngest Grandson as it was a current subject at school. Not heard his thoughts on the book as yet. However I would recommend it to anyone with an interest.
