Oakville's Flower

By Livingston, Sean E

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.

Loch Class Frigates

By Boniface, Patrick

Liskeard: Maritime, 2013. Hardcover. Fine/very good. The Loch class was to prove to be amongst the best A/S frigates produced by Great Britain during the war, although most of the class only entered service from 1944 onwards. 110 ships were projected, but with the end of the war only 28 were completed as such. This volume records the design and service record of these vessels.
