About the Book

In May of 1940 — the early days of World War II — half a million British and French soldiers were trapped in France.

Weak and wounded, they needed aid. Help came in the form of countless small craft, steered by brave young men, in the legendary armada of “little ships” that sailed aross the English Channel.

Many people wanted to be a part of the rescue mission. Here is the story of a girl who was so determined to help that she disguised herself as a boy to blend in with the men as they sailed toward Dunkirk.
