Oakville's Flower: The History of HMCS Oakville

by Livingston, Sean E

Condition: As New


Toronto: Dundurn, 2014. Paperback. As New. The story of HMCS Oakville, a corvette that fought U-boats in WWII and remains a hero to its hometown in Oakville, Ontario. This is an in-depth look at the history and legacy of HMCS Oakville, a Canadian World War II corvette that fought in the Battle of the Atlantic, and was one of the few corvettes to sink a U-boat. From its creation through its christening off the shores of its namesake town, its exploits at sea, the famous encounter with U94, and the ship's lackluster end, Oakville's is a story that showcases not only our nation's proud naval heritage, but also the importance of remembrance.Oakville's Flower sets the scene of naval war in the Atlantic — the battles between convoys, stealthy U-boats, and the lowly corvettes that formed the backbone of the Royal Canadian Navy. We follow Oakville, one of those corvettes, through its rise and fall as a Canadian naval legend, to its revival in the town of Oakville, championed by the local Sea Cadet Corps that shares its name and safeguards its legacy.
