The Message takes place in the 1940s in Caen, France, during Hitler's reign over Europe during World War II. Three young, brave French Resistance workers meet privately to relay important information to other Resistance workers. Using a homemade radio transmitter, they broadcast lifesaving information to help liberate France--but not without facing grave danger. Illustrations and maps support the text.
