Synopsis

Walter Tull: Footballer, Soldier, Hero Band 17/Diamond by Dan Lyndon

Walter Tull was a successful footballer and officer in the British Army in World War One. These achievements are even more exceptional because Walter was Afro-Caribbean, succeeding in a world that still considered black people inferior. Follow him from the orphanage to the football field and final days in the trenches, in this inspiring biography. * Diamond/Band 17 books offer more complex, underlying themes to give opportunities for children to understand causes and points of view. * A biography * A timeline on pages 54 and 55 presents the key events in Walter Tull's life chronologically, allowing plenty of recapping and further discussion. * Curriculum Links: History: What was it like to live here in the past?
