This is a kid's novel I remember from grade school. It is set in World War II Britain, probably on the south or east coast, and features a boy who finds a crashed german plane in the woods with a dead pilot. He salvages a machine gun from the plane and installs it in a pillbox with the fantasy of defending his town from other German planes. I think it might also have a surviving German airman from the crashed plane who the boy encounters. Anybody?
