Rate this:
The wartime naval career of a popular author/artist who joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1938 as a cadet. He was a junior officer on HMCS Ottawa when that destroyer was sunk by a German submarine with great loss of life in 1941. Surviving this, he went on to serve on other RCN ships, including HMCS Algonquin, one of the first ships to open fire in the Normandy landings.Illustrated with Jenson's line drawings showing ships, life on board, uniforms, insignia, etc., the book is a record not only of how ships fought the Atlantic battles but of life on board, when men lived in close quarters in dreadful weather and in constant peril of U-boat attacks, all seen through the eyes of an engaging young officer.
