"A great story, very well told," says university professor.

Thoroughly researched and most enjoyable to read, this book tells the story of the Canadian Submarine Service from the first day of the Great War to the present. Ferguson uses dialogue and one fictional chapter to bring the tale alive and ensures there is a strong focus on the submariners themselves. A must read for all naval history buffs!
