The inspirational true story of Walter Tullâ??s life is vividly reimagined here in scrapbook form, drawing on photographs, documents and records of his life. Born in Kent, in 1888, Walter Tull became not just the first black British professional outfield football player â?? for Tottenham Hotspur and Northampton Town - but also the first black officer in the British Army.

His leadership and courage in the trenches of the First World War won him a recommendation for a Military Cross that was never awarded because of his skin colour.

His story takes the reader from his childhood in an orphanage, through his footballing years, to his eventual tragic death, aged 29, on the Somme. His legacy lives on. 

Michaela Morgan has written over a hundred books for children. She has been shortlisted for the Children''s Book Award, been an International Reading Association Children''s Choice and won a United Kingdom Reading Association award.
