"Bonaventure was not always comfortable, the aircraft were not always serviceable, and the weather often made the whole job impossible, but, these Canadians persevered. They inhabited the often unliveable spaces of the ship and made it home. They wrought greater mission successes from the aircraft than did other nations and they held out against the North Atlantic with as much hardiness as their immigrant forefathers had shown in braving the New World's harsh climes. In spite of having the world's longest coastline, Canada is not a maritime nation. Yet, given time and experience at sea, Canadians have stood second to none in naval ability as was proven during the Second World War. In naval aviation, it was proven during the era of Bonaventure." - from the dj. With appendices & a bibliography. Very good in lightly nicked dust jacket. Signed, inscribed and dated by Snowie on the title page. Uncommon. 130.00
