BOOK - New Brunswick and the Navy: Four Hundred Years
By Marc Milner & Glenn Leonard, New Brunswick Military Heritage Project
Published by Goose Lanes Editions, Fredericton, 2010

Softcover...16.95 (C$)

From the seafaring battles between the British and the French of the 1640s to the privateers of the War of 1812, from the merchant ships of the Second World War to the construction of the corvettes and frigates in the 20th century, New Brunswick has played an important role in Canada's naval history.

In 1881, the new Dominion of Canada chose New Brunswick as the base for its naval operations. Three decades later, New Brunswick MP Sir George Foster initiated Parliamentary debates that led to the founding of the modern Canadian Navy. In this fact-filled volume, Marc Milner and Glenn Leonard tell the story of New Brunswick's contribution to Canada's storied naval heritage.
