For sixty-eight months the Canadian navy was in the thick of the battle in the North Atlantic, along the convoy runs. In other fierce campaigns along the eastern seaboard of North America, in the St. Lawrence River and the Gulf, in the Arctic, the Mediterranean, the English Channel, the North Sea, the Bay of Normandy, Sicily, Italy, North Africa and Greece, Canadian ships and seaman wrote a gallant chapter in history. The absorbing drama is simply and vividly told, and is well illustrated with maps and photographs. With the rank of Lieutenant-Commander (Special Branch), Joseph Schull served in the navy during the war as Naval Intelligence and naval Information Officer in Canada, Newfoundland and Europe. He was commissioner by the Minister of National Defense to produce this account of Canadian naval Operations. All records of the Naval service were made available to him, as well as all preliminary narratives complied by officers of the naval historical Section.
