62 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. Pp (6),vii-ix,(3),1-236 + frontispiece + 8 pages of B&w photos. Map and a few illustrations in the text. 8vo, grey cloth with red lettering to spine. Watters p. 662, Rhodenizer p.613, Laugher p.92. 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.

64 CHANUKOFF, Lon Submarine Z-1. First American Edition in dustjacket.
Citadel Press, New York, 1960, 
CHANUKOFF, Lon. Submarine Z-1: a novel. New York : Citadel Press, (1960). Pp (6),7-221,(3). 8vo, purple cloth spine, blue paper-covered boards, white lettering to spine. Translated from the Yiddish by Max Rosenfeld. Anderson 209. Lon aka Leon Chanukoff (b. February 3, 1893, Olchovo, Russia - d. September 24, 1958, New York City). A rather claustrophobic novel concerning "the greatest submarine that ever came off the production line", her mad Yankee captain, and twenty men sealed for days in one of her compartments at the bottom of the ocean. "She was the greatest submarine that ever came off the produotion line. She was the last word in technical perfection and had everxery possible kind of equipment to safeguard her crew. Submarine Z-l washer name, but nobody called her that. Her crew called her The Swan becau&e she was so beautiful. And to these men who tended her, she was almost a my th, a symbol of everything that was lovely and yet efficient. This is the exciting and gripping story of the death of this mighty vessel, a deatn caused by the elements which drove her to the bottom of the sea, disibled and dying; caused too by the madness of her commanding officer, Lieutenant Commander Calvin Barker who was out to prove that his ship could reach its destination on time, and defied both the orders of headquarters and common sensein his frenzy. It is mainly, however, the story of the twenty-odd men who remained alive for days, sealed otf in one of the waterproof compartments. They were the sole survivors ot the tragedy, but continued to face imminentand terrible death. The shattering, intense, and unbearably poignant story of the experiences of these men trapped at the bottom of tte sea mounts in excitement as the novel develops. In the hours of waiting for rescue, the reader see all of their lives as they relive the years. He hears them discuss the futility of war, their loathing of their commander, and theiir awareness that they and their colleagues had been sacrificed in a useless cause.As one by one die off, the terror of hunger, thirst, even cannibalism perv ades the sealed-off compartment. The men quarrel, and death by violence adds to the toll of the sea. As this authentic and powerful novel of life and death on the bottom of the sea draws to its close, the myth of Submarine Z-1 is finally shattered." (from the dj).

" The Baralong Affair was a British disgrace: a war crime unparalleled in the modern hist ory of the Royal Navy. Until now its shameful details have been deliberately obscured, but its significance in delaying the entry of the United Statesinto the First World War has never been evaluated. In 1915 the War Office sent out the Q-ship Baralong elaborately disguised as a US merchant ship. On encountering the U-27 she threw off the camouflage and sank the German vessel. The subsequent alleged murder in cold blood of some of the U-boat's survivors caused an international diplomatic furore. President Wilson turnedaway in horror; the Germans saw the incident as a valuable weapon of propa ganda; and the British Admiralty battened down on all official records. Thefacts can now be told. In clear detail, Alan Coles reveals the appalling t ruth of the Baralong Affair. For the first time British, American and German eye-witness accounts of the atrocities have been collected together to explain - and finally to judge - this naval scandal." -from the dj.
