Title: Hmcs Swansea : The Life and Times of a Frigate
Description: Canada: Vanwell Publishing Ltd, 1994. First Edition. Hardcover. 0920277896 190 pages. Index. Bibliography. Index. Oblong 9" x 11". "The story of a ship. Just one of Canada's several hundred warships. It is also the story of the men who served in her, and of other ships who operated with her, in wartime in EG-9, and in peacetime in her various training roles. It is a representative tale that could have been told, and has been, of any one of a hundred similar ships of the Royal Canadian Navy. So why this particular ship? Because HMCS Swansea is typical, yet atypical. Typical in that she participated in the Battle of the Atlantic in the same way as her sister frigates, atypical in that she was involved in the destruction of four U-boats, more than any other RCN ship. And it was in this role of hunter-killer that she was absolutely the best." - from dust jacket. Book clean, bright and unmarked with very light wear. Light wear to price-clipped dust jacket. A handsome copy.. Fine .
