71 HOW, Douglas Night of the Caribou. Sixth Printing.
Lancelot, 1990, ISBN:0889994102 
HOW, Douglas. Night of the Caribou. Hantsport : Lancelot Press, (March 1990). Sixth Printing. Pp (3),4-153,(1) + 14 pp of illustrations. 8vo, illustrated black card covers with yellow lettering to front and spine. The events of October 13-14, 1942 and the fate of the Nova Scotia to Newfoundland ferry sunk by a German submarine. "Intense human drama underlies the explosive wrtime night of October 13-14, 1942. A German submarine sinks the Nova Scotia-to-Newfoundland ferry Caribou. Of 237 passengers and crew, 101 survive; of 11 children under 10, only one, and he almost by a miracle. A millionaire-in-the-making can't understand his forebodings till they prove all too true. A soldier swims beside a woman fighting to get to a raft, and vanishes before her eyes when she reaches it. One nursing sister keeps another alivetill their frigid hands part forever. A family of five perishes because a father thinks this is the safest way to go home. Scores die by turning a lifeboat into a casket they refuse to leave. Scores die in another because ofa simple oversight. The ferry's captain stands six feet proud going down w ith his ship. The captain of his warship escort lives a terrible private anguish, trapped by inadequate equipment and iron navy rules. The captain of a U-boat nicknamed 'The Laughing Cow' finds refuge in a macabre place: beneath his living victims, above the dead. But, by a supreme irony, it is his log, only recently unearthed after years of gathering dust, which best answers bitter questions asked to this day. Using this and other documents, both Canadian and German, official files, newspaper reports, archival material, interviews from then and now, author Douglas How poignantly reconstructs the panic, horror, confusion, courage -- and the controversial sequels -- of an episode that tripped the sea war to absolute essentials in a classic triangle: one victim ship exploding, flaming as she dies, one killer submarine watching, gloating, and one Canadian warhip rushing hellbent for revenge. He tells, for the first time, the story of the harsh gossip which tainted, can still taint, that warship's name ebcause what she did, and why she did it, was little understand then and has been ever since." - from rear. Very good. Due to its small size, shipping charges should be cheaper than quoted. 10.00
