SOUTHWARK, U.K. - Oct. 21, 2016 - PRLog -- Based on accounts of true events, the story of the Benin Expedition combat is told through the eyes of a British's officer's young valet. Emily the main character is on a school trip with her classmates to the World Museum. In an incident, she is transported back in time to February 4th 1897 where she joins the British infantry. She is taken under the wings of the young valet to one of the officers. She journeys with them from the beginning of the combat right up to the point where they enter Benin City. Concerned about their behaviour, she challenges the actions of the soldiers and she is ordered to be shot.

She has a change of fortune when she finds herself back in Britain in a hospital bed and her worried mum sitting next to her.

This event in history is told through a child and in a child's language. It includes descriptions of the rainforest terrain.
