This is the true story of an Irish boy, John Boyle that went to sea when he was just twelve years of age, in the early years of the nineteen hundreds. He did this to help sustain his growing family of ten including his parents but also to seek adventure upon the ocean wave. He worked as a fireman on a steam locomotive train before plying this trade on the high seas. He secured a good job on transatlantic ocean going liners with White Star Line who boasted Titanic in their fleet. However the ships he worked were sister ships Laurentic and Magentic, and The SS Haverford. He also worked on the ship Amerika of the Hamburg USA Line where he met up with who was to become his best friend Hans, a native of Germany.

During the course of his travels he met, fell hopelessly in love, and married Lauren Hobbs, a Lady from Liverpool. Laura was a of high social standing but John was accepted by her parents who gave their blessing to their relationship. Life was good for John Boyle because having a good job he was able to send money home for his family every week as well as postcards from the cities he visited around the world. He had found true love with Lauren and had his best friend Hans who always covered his back. Then in 1914 the first world broke out and life for John and his friends all changed and they all struggled through this blackest period in world history. This is his unique story in a time when man's inhumanity to man was a common theme in the blood filled battles on land as well as on the sea and John Boyle was at the cutting edge.
