    This book is part of the My Story series geared towards young teenagers. The series uses first person narrative to tell stories of what it was like at various points through history. This particular book tells the story of the fictional Peter Rogers who served on a Corvette from 1939-45. The story begins while he is in training for the Merchant Marines, but as war is declared and his father's merchant marine ship is sunk by a German u-boat (his father survives although the u-boat commander ruthl [...]

    This book is great. It follows a young man (15 at the start of the book) through WW2. Peter Rogers is the son of a merchant sea captain. He signs up for the war effort and gets assigned to a U-boat hunter that escorts merchant ships across the Atlantic throughout the war. This is a part of the war that I hadn't learned much about before. There is a lot of information about the battle for the Atlantic and how the Allies sought to protect merchant and soldier ships from U-boats. The only draw back [...]

    This entire series is a wonderful way to learn history or teach it to adolescents. I find today's generations seem to recall more when they learn through other people (pop songs, celebrity gossip, etc.), so what better way to teach history than through someone else's perspective? Yes, "authentic" diaries would be "better", but would the language really hold the modern student's attention? Did the diary writer know what WOULD be important in the context of history? Probably not.

    I Read this book quite a while ago when I was younger for a book report. At the time I didn't like reading as much as I do now, or at least i didn't read as often. This book is a page turner and hard to put down. The soldiers story is amazing and definitely very entertaining, and although this book is marketed more to kids, I would recommend it to anyone. That book report I was dreading, and fearing the 3 week deadline was finished in two days. A great read, lots of fun!

    Part of a series that's the Canadian version of the Dear America books. Interesting history from a different viewpoint - all of them good but this one in particular tells of the British Merchant Marine during WWII- an incredibly gutsy bunch of guys.
