BOOK - Saint John Fortifications, 1630-1956
By Roger Sarty & Doug Knight


Softcover... 14.95 (C$)
Saint John, always an important gateway to Canada, is one of the oldest fortified sites in the country. Saint John Fortifications, 1630-1956 traces the history of the port’s defences, from Fort La Tour, built in 1632, to the 20th-century installations built as protection from German invasion.

Although the last of the modern installations on Partridge Island was disabled in 1956, many sites still contain substantial reminders of their past strength.

About the Authors: Roger Sarty, one of Canada’s foremost military historians, is the deputy director of the Canadian War Museum and the author of Canada and the Battle of the Atlantic. Ottawa military historian Doug Knight is a retired Canadian Army officer. His engineering experience provides a solid background for his research into the history of Canadian military equipment and fortifications.
