Level: Middle Years (6-9)
Adam is keen to go to sea, and when his mother dies and father goes to Glasgow to find work, he enlists in the Merchant Navy, a fitting place for a young man who lives near the docks in Liverpool. But it is wartime and his ships must take goods to America and bring goods back to help England survive. An adventure like no other with U-boats on their tail.
