Warships of the Bay of Quinte
Written by Roger Litwiller.
Published by Dundurn Press, 2011.
|This is the story of six of Canada's Warships: HMCS
Napanee, Belleville, Hallowell, Trentonian,
Quinte I and Quinte II. These histories give a unique account of
the small ships that have been the backbone of the Canadian Navy during the
Second World War and the Cold War. The stories record the accomplishments of
these hardworking ships as well as the mistakes.
This rich and vivid account of an important part of Canada's Naval Service draws from the records of the ships, interviews with their crews, letters, diaries, newspaper articles, community libraries and photographs. You will learn about the HMCS Napanee as she fights a five day battle against twenty-four German submarines in on one of Canada's most tragic convoy battles. Be with HMCS Belleville as she fights to rescue a torpedoed merchant ship and find out about how a German submarine sinks the HMCS Trentonian late in the war killing six of her crew.
Roger Litwiller's interest in Canada's Navy began as a Sea Cadet in his hometown of Kitchener, Ontario. He later became an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve and the Navy League of Canada. He lives near Trenton, Ontario.
