The Boy Allies books were the creation of the A.L. Burt group and were published under the pen-names of "Ensign Robert L. Drake" and "Clair W. Hayes."
There were actually two groups of Boy Allies, one on land, fighting with whatever allied army would have them against the beastly Huns, and one at sea, serving the British and American Navies.
The Allies on land Chester Crawford and Hal Paine had a busy time moving from the Marne to the Carpathians, where they fought alongside the Cossacks, to the Aisne, to the Alps, to the Somme, Verdun, Vimy Ridge, Chateau-Thierry, and ending up the war as aides to Marshal Foch.
The Allies at sea, Frank Chadwick and Jack Templeton, saw service at Jutland, in the North Sea and Baltic. They began fighting against the Huns, destroying whole squadrons and upgrading their own ship considerably. They had a number of ships sunk out from under them but always prevailed, even against enemy saboteurs. They also managed to get involved in submarine warfare and in bombing German civilians.
These are classic Books with strong characters and amazing action adventure episodes making them a thrilling read for young boys.
