About this title

Synopsis:

The story of a teenager who ends up as a deck boy on navy ships, learning the ropes, fitting in with the crew, and facing wartime action in World War II.
We had trained for emergencies. Every man knew how to launch a lifeboat. There were life jackets to save us, but no one said, Oh, and this is what an exploding torpedo does, and here's what happens when the ship sinks under you. And the lights will be out, so you'll be in the dark.

It is 1940, and war rages. With nothing to keep him at home, 15-year-old Adam Chisholm joins Britain's Merchant Navy. 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. Includes a seven-page glossary of nautical terms and features WWII memorabilia throughout.

About the Author:

David McRobbie is the author of more than 30 books for children and young adults, including Vinnie's War and A Whole Lot of Wayne. In To Brave the Seas he draws again on his Merchant Navy experiences to add color and realism to the story.
