Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. Volume III of the Canada's Military Heritage trilogy. William Arthur Bishop (b. June 13, 1923. London, England - d. February 14, 2013, Toronto) Canadian writer of military history, RCAF fighter pilot during WW2, and son of BillyBishop. "Courage at Sea is the concluding volume of Canada's Military Heri tage trilogy compiled by Arthur Bishop. This brings to life Canada's war heroes at sea through two World Wars as well as the Royal Canadian Navy's role in Korea. The Silent Service has lived up to its name only too well, withthe result that Canadian valour at sea is too little known. Names and deed s, the exception being some of our warships, do not come easily or readily to mind. Arthur Bishop corrects this national indignity by bringing to lifethe role of Canada's maritime heroes in the Battle of the Atlantic, the ev acuation of Dunkirk, the invasion of North Africa, the battles in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Bay of Biscay, and the dreaded Murmansk Run. All ofthis drama and attendant horror of war - and some of the humour, too, - ar e told in a vivid, compelling style." - from the dj.
