"…digging in for a captivating read."

Book 2 in the Tales of War from Doubleday (Book 1 is Wings of War)
Alec Shorecross is 14 and already working down the mines in Newfoundland for 13 cents an hour. WWI seems to offer Alec a chance to escape the underground darkness, so he signs up and heads overseas, his head filled with heroic dreams. Unfortunately, he soon finds himself risking his life with 169 Tunnelling Company, placing mines beneath the enemy trenches.
