Product Description

Review

This rich and vivid account of an important part of Canadas Naval Service draws from the records of the ships, interviews with their crews, letters, diaries, newspaper articles, community libraries and photographs.



While the colour cover painting is striking and the illustrations inside well-chosen, the narrative in the chapters is the real strength of the book.

Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in Canadian naval history.

Roger Litwiller obviously spent considerable hours doing exhaustive research on all six vessels and he has a knack for translating this research into text that is easy enough for a landlubber to understand and enjoy while not boring the bellbottoms off professional sailors. His bibliography is extensive, and a gold mine for anyone wishing to follow up with further reading.

About the Author

Roger’s interest in Canada’s Navy began as a Sea Cadet in his hometown of Kitchener, Ontario. He later became an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve and the Navy League of Canada. Educated in Emergency Medical Services, Roger has served the Quinte Region of Ontario since 1982 as a decorated Paramedic. Other interests include public speaking and photographic artist. Roger resides near Trenton with his wife Rhonda and their six children.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Warships of the Bay of Quinte is another excellent book by Roger Litwiller. Anyone who has an interest in Naval history, especially Canadian Naval History, should add to their personal library. As I have come to appreciate from reading his other book, White Ensign Flying, Roger does an amazing amount of research into his subject matter. I applaud his efforts to record the history of these ships for the men who served on them, the communities that sponsored them and history buffs, current and for generations to come, who will appreciate the amount of detail provided by Warships of the Bay of Quite!

An exceptionally well researched and written book of the Canadian Navy and small towns of Canada during WW2. A must read for all naval historians.

Warships on the Bay of Quinte May 2 2011
By Kate Kupecz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am not usually a fan of history books but since I live in the area I decided to look at this one. I was pleasantly surprised. It is well written, well researched and easy to read. The pictures are wonderful too.
