To brave the seas: a boy at war

SHOP:9781743313077

It is 1940, and the Second World War rages. With nothing to keep him at home, fifteen year old Adam Chisholm joins Britain's Merchant Navy and ends up as a deck boy, learning the ropes, fitting in with the crew and facing wartime action. His first ship takes him on a stormy Atlantic convoy where he faces seasickness, submarines and shipwreck. In his remarkable sea journeys, Adam meets enemies face to face, and makes friends - some for a lifetime. Suitable for young readers 10 – 13 years.
