During the Nazi occupation of Ukraine, a match was set up between Dynamo Kiev's players, playing as FC Start, and a German side. Kiev won. And when the Germans fielded a better side, Kiev beat them too. And again, and again. Until the half-starved FC Start players faced an international-calibre German side, under the threat of execution if
they didn't let the occupiers win... An astonishing true story.

Highly readable, exciting books that take the struggle out of reading, Wired encourages and supports reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate stories for struggling and reluctant readers or those with English as an additional language aged 11+, at a manageable length (64 pages) and reading level (8+). Produced in association with reading experts at CatchUp, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties.
