Annotation

Fifteen-year-old Adam tells his story as a deck hand in this first person narrative about World War II aboard a ship in the Merchant Navy. Life on board and ashore capture life during wartime. In addition to an engaging character, a range of techniques, including posters, glossary, afterword and a poem add understanding of life during this period.
