To brave the seas: a boy at war
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.
