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.(Seawaves 2011-07-23)
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. (Northern Mariner magazine 2012-01-01)
Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in Canadian naval history. (Sea Breezes 2012-05-01)
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.
