I read a book to earn this badge:
"Snow Goose" by Paul Allico
This book--both written during WWII and set in WWII--is about a reclusive artist who lived at a lighthouse on England's coastline. He cares for an injured Snow Goose and befriends the local girl who brought the goose to him. He breaks out of seclusion to help save his fellow countrymen--soldiers trapped by Germans on the shores of Dunkirk. A short but remarkable story.
