Book descriptionEdit

"It would go down in history as the last great naval battle. One boy was destined to emerge a hero. Jack Cornwell was just sixteen when he made the ultimate sacrifice by standing and waiting in case 'he might be needed'. His courageous story moved the nation and offered hope when all the lights were going out."
