"Nineteen ninety marks the fiftieth anniversary of the American military presence in Newfoundland and Labrador. In this spectacular review, the author describes the highlights of each major U.S. base and other installations from 1940 to 1990. Vintage photographs and documents illustrate the importance and significance of events during this period and leave the reader with the full realization of the miiltary importance placed on Newfoundland and Labrador during the past five decades.

During the years of the Second World War, over 750,000 American servicemen passed through the many U.S. bases and installations; over 100,000 were stationed here for a number of years; over 25,000 married Newfoundland women. While many papers have been written on the social and economic effects the Americans had on the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, this is the first factual story of fifty years of change in Newfoundland's history. The accomplishments and achievements by the American forces, and the benefits to Newfoundlanders as a result of their presence, are described and illustrated." - from the dust jacket.

203 CARTER, Dyson CARTER, Herbert Dyson Sea of Destiny : The Story of Hudson Bay, America's Undefended Back Door. First Edition.
Greenberg, Gravenhurst, Ontario, 1940, 
CARTER, H. Dyson. Sea of Destiny : The Story of Hudson Bay, America's Undefended Back Door. New York : Greenberg Publisher, (1940). First Edition.

Herbert Dyson Carter was born in Saint John, February 2, 1910.He was living in Saint Boniface, Manitoba at the time of publication. "In the late 1930s Carter also began a scholarlywork of historical geography which urged the development of Hudson Bay as a mercantile seaport for the Canadian wheat-farming regions, and as a base of naval defense against a possible invasion of North America. Sea of Destiny (1940) was very pro-Russian, drawing a comparison between the USSR's development of its Arctic and Canada's neglect of its own northern territories. It was also anti-German, suggesting that Nazi submarines and battleships might well exploit the Bay as a major point of vulnerability in North American defenses. Reviewers were impressed by this knowledgeable introduction to a neglected feature of North American history and geography - although the isolationist New York Times reviewer dismissed Carter's "alarmist" prophecies that the European war might be carried into the Arctic." - James Doyle. 1.

"Most of the troops were delivered to that part of Canada which was nearest the war, Halifax. When we arrived there we tried to make believe that it would be just like thesummer training period we enjoyed the years before. When we would play at mock warfare and feel very courageous about it all knowing that it was all pretence. Where the hero could lie down dead and rise again to fight another day. Or meet the gang in the little red school house for a beer that night. But now, the minute that you stepped off that train, you realized, or atleast thought you did, that here was a far different Halifax! This was the real thing. Now the government was going to get its money back and prove t he worth of all that pre-war training." - pp.100-101. "Question: 'What happened to Henry Hudson?' "Answer: 'He was marooned with disgrace from the Royal Canadian Navy. One dark Saturday, at eleven o'clock he was put ashore atHalifax clothed only in a duck suit. Then he was left on Barrington Street with only a tin of spam, a water bottle and a service revolver with one ro und of ball ammunition.'" from a series of very silly officer-seaman interrogations. - p.259. "Eight o'clock found me at the North West entrance of the Public Gardens. A beautiful landscaped park of winding paths and fragrantflowers, in the heart of downtown Halifax. There is a fair sized pond situ ated in these lovely ground [sic] and, floating upon the pond are little model ships. They seem to portray an established fact that the people of Halifax are, first and foremost, sea minded." - p.227. The as yet unwritten book:The Care and Feeding of Naval Rabbits, p.158. "The sailor that you see rolling down the street is not all rum and tabacco [sic] and tattoo marks as you might have been led to believe. He may have exchanged his memories of Kant with another who has studied Freud or Voltaire." - p.161-2. "All the illustrsations appearing in the book and jacket design, were accomplished by Pete Younger, who,since the printing of the first edition, has rejoined theRCN and at present is instructing New Entries at Cornwallis. During the wa r Younger could have accepted a posh number ashore doing art work for the government but he elected to remain at sea where he saw considerable serviceon the North Atlantic, Mediterranean and 'D' Day operations in France. Man y will remember his work of art on the gun shield of HMCS Moosejaw, depicting a roaring moose chasing Hitler who looks anxiously over his shoulder at the moose who has a section of Hitler's pants in his moutn and a 'U' boat draped in his antlers. What the author has failed to put in printing, the artist has done it with his clever pen." - from the rear panel of the dust jacket.

CHAPMAN, Harry. Nova Scotia's Role in the War of 1812. Dartmouth : Dartmouth Historical Association, (2012). First Printing. Pp. (8),3-100,(6). Illustrated in b&w. 8vo (192 x 241 mm), art-illustrated grey glossy paper-covered boards with red & brown lettering to front board, brown lettering to grey spine.

Harry Chapman (b. 1937).

"The War of 1812 is dubbed by some historians as the 'Forgotten War'. It was a conflict between the British Empire and the United States of America. Although there were no land battles fought on Nova Scotian soil, the province played an important role in the conflict. Nova Scotia was the base for the North Atlantic fleet of Britain's navy. From Halifax Harbour, British warships sailed out to do battle with the American navy, to blockade American seaports, and to protect convoys of trade between British North America and Great Britain. It was from Halifax that an expedition of British warships and soldiers left to capture and occupy the town of Castine and the northeastern part of Maine. Privateer vessels set forth from several Nova Scotian harbours to wage war on America's merchant fleet. The actions and heroics of the privateers left an indelible mark on the pages of Nova Scotia's history. The Dartmouth Historical Association hopes that the publication of this book will ensure that the War of 1812, and in particular Nova Scotia's role in that conflict, will no longer be forgotten." - from the rear cover.

Part 2. Naval War on the East Coast. (Britannia Rules the Waves: The British Navy : 1812 - "Don't Give Up the Ship": The American Navy : 1812 - The Shannon and Chesapeake Sea Battle - After the Sea Battle).

Dr. Peter Charlebois (b. 1928 - d. May 29, 2013, Scarborough, Ontario).

"The first book to deal comprehensively with those thrashing, puffing monsters of yesteryear. The smell of the smoke, the slapping of the paddles on the water, the shrilling of the steam whistle as the boat comes in to dock, in towns large and small, all across Canada.

The steam engines in paddlewheel boats developed along two lines: the horizontally inclined engine drove the sternwheeler (which had the paddlewheel at the back) and the vertical walking-beam engine drove the sidewheelers. These boats were designed to operate without difficulty in 18 to 24 inches of water. They were the only large craft which could be used commercially in shallow or narrow rivers or in poor harbours.

Paddlewheelers range from locally built crude boats, such as those on the Athabaska, to the opulent pleasure palaces that plied the St. Lawrence and the Great Lakes.

Gabriel Dumont's barn boards were used to arm the Northcote which fought and lost Canada's first naval battle in the middle of the prairies in the uprising of 1885. The Beaver, belonging to the Hudson's Bay Company, hugged the B.C. coast, picking up furs from the native peoples. The Waubono sank without a trace in Georgian Bay after a bride dreamed of her husband's death by drowning. " - from the rear cover.

Goose Lane Editions, Fredericton, NB, 2002, ISBN:0864923600 2002 
CHOYCE, Lesley. The Coasts of Canada : A History. (Fredericton, New Brunswick) : Goose Lane Editions, (2002). First Printing. Pp. (10),11-308,(4). With many illustrations in the text. 8vo (162 x 235 mm), blue cloth, silver lettering to front & spine.

Lesley Willis Choyce (b. March 21, 1951, Riverside Township, New Jersey), novelist, poet, educator and publisher.

The lives of those who live on the east and west coasts of Canada are invariably intertwined with the sea. This is the story of the civilizations that sprung up on the coasts of Canada, and the men and women who worked (and still do) on the sea.

"As benevolent as it is brutal, the sea has controlled Canada’s history and shaped our collective identity. The Coasts of Canada tells the stories of our east, west, and north coastlines, from the earliest human habitation until today. A coast-dweller himself, Lesley Choyce is fascinated by the legendary men of the sea, but his sympathy lies with the men and women whose everyday lives are governed by the country’s oceans.

Brimming with heroes and villains, shipwrecks and rescues, roguery and virtue, and stories of overcoming unimaginable odds, The Coasts of Canada is idiosyncratic, eclectic, and iconoclastic. It’s a book of discoveries, a record of misdeeds and misjudgements, and a pleas to preserve the good things of the sea, the shore, and the coastal communities." - from the dustjacket.
