July 27, 1966, Winnipeg, Manitoba), a professor of history at Dalhousie University, Halifax. "'Churchill and Sea Power' is the first major study of Winston Churchill's record as a naval strategist and his impact as the most prominent guardian of Britain's sea power in the modern era. Based on extensive archival research, the book debundsmany popular and well-entrenched myths surrounding controversial episodes in both World Wars, including the Dardanelles disaster, the Norwegian Campaign, the Battle of the Atlantic, and the devastating loss of HMS Prince of Wales and HMS Repulse in 1941. It shows that many common criticisms of Churchill have also been exaggerated, but also that some of his mistakes have been largely overlooked, such as his willingness to prolong the Battle of the Atlantic in order to concentrate resources on the bombing campaign against Nazi Germany." -from the dustjacket.
