The Halifax Explosion and the Royal Canadian Navy  Inquiry and Intrigue, Armstrong, John Griffith
2 Armstrong, John Griffith The Halifax Explosion and the Royal Canadian Navy Inquiry and Intrigue
Vancouver BC University of British Columbia Press 2002 077480890x / 9780774808903 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Light edge wear, small nick to front panel of dust jacket, missing front free end paper, ; DJ in Mylar. A bright, solid book ; Studies in Canadian Military History; 0.9 x 9.1 x 6.2 Inches; 248 pages; "The Halifax Explosion of 1917 is a defining event in the Canadian consciousness, yet it has never been the subject of a sustained analytical history. Astonishingly, until now no one has consulted the large federal government archives that contain first-hand accounts of the disaster and the response of national authorities. Canada's recently established navy was at the epicentre of the crisis. Armstrong reveals the navy's compelling, and little-known, story by carefully retracing the events preceding the disaster and the role of the military in its aftermath. He catches the pulse of disaster response in official Ottawa and provides a compelling analysis of the legal manoeuvres, rhetoric, blunders, public controversy, and crisis management that ensued. His disturbing conclusion is that federal officials knew of potential dangers in the harbour before the explosion, took no corrective action, and kept the information from the public. As a result, a Halifax naval officer was made a scapegoat and the navy received lasting, and mostly undeserved, vilification. This is a provocative read not only for military and naval devotees but for anyone who wants to understand one of the events that shaped Canada in the twentieth century. Published in association with the Canadian War Museum."

11 Blackburn, George The Guns of Victory A Soldier's Eve View, Belgium, Holland, and Germany, 1944-45
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1996 0771015011 / 9780771015014 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Only light edgewear to dust jacket; Signed by the author on the title page. A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. ; B&W Illustrations; 9.10 X 6.10 X 1.80 inches; 520 pages; "For the Canadian Soldiers who lived through the momentous battle for Normandy in the summer of 1944, it was inconceivable that the conflict in Europe could continue for another eight long months. The war was won, they thought, and to win it they had been pushed to what seemed like the limits of endurance. But ahead lay not only an enemy with no thoughts of surrender, but also appalling battle conditions reminiscent of the legendary miseries of Passchendaele.This much-anticipated sequel to 'The Guns of Normandy' picks up where its critically acclaimed predecessor leaves off, and it continues in the same absorbing, startlingly vivid style. After the battle for Normandy, Blackburn’s 4th Field Regiment, with the rest of 1st Canadian Army, is called upon to pursue the enemy through the flooded Low Country, clearing the Scheldt estuary – a task equal to that of D-Day – and opening the port of Antwerp to allow for the huge influx of supplies necessary to press on against the German forces, now fighting with mounting desperation and ferocity.After enduring the worst winter in local memory, and spending yet another Christmas far from home, in the spring of 1945 the Canadians are thrust into the crucial Battle of the Rhineland, which will eventually allow Allied forces to plunge into the heart of the Reich.When victory comes, it is with no sense of triumph over a vanquished foe, but with the profoundest relief that this most terrible conflict in history is finally over.Told with Blackburn’s now trademark sense of drama and eye for detail, this story of the desperate struggle for Europe becomes as large as life. It should fully establish Blackburn as the author of an acknowledged classic on the Second World War."

Where the Hell Are the Guns?  A Soldier's View of the Anxious Years, 1939-44, Blackburn, George
12 Blackburn, George Where the Hell Are the Guns? A Soldier's View of the Anxious Years, 1939-44
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1997 0771015046 / 9780771015045 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Only light wear.; A bright, solid book, DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; B&W Photographs; 1.7 x 9.2 x 6.1 Inches; 456 pages; In 'Where the Hell Are the Guns?', author George Blackburn returns to the early years of the Second World War. This volume – which completes Blackburn’s award-winning trilogy, extending its coverage to the entire war – brings wartime Canada and England to life in captivating, often comic, detail. With the skill of a novelist and the instincts of a seasoned reporter, this gifted storyteller traces the evolution of Canada’s 4th Field Regiment from a motley assortment of ill-equipped recruits to the cream of the Allied artillery, more than ready to distinguish itself in the maelstrom of the battle for Normandy. WWII comes to a generation of Canadians one sunny September weekend in 1939. It is a Canada woefully unprepared for conflict, and 4th Field Regiment is rapidly assembled from a grab-bag of volunteers from all walks of life – many of them mavericks and misfits from a depression-ravaged land. The regiment passes its first year in Canada in makeshift accommodation, including hastily converted stables and pigsties in the exhibition grounds of Ottawa & Toronto. For the first few months the soldiers must wear incomplete and moth-eaten uniforms from the Great War, and their early training is conducted using obsolete equipment or no equipment at all. One year into the war, the regiment arrives in England without weapons or vehicles, and a month later, with Britain moving toward the greatest crisis in her history, the regiment is finally equipped with guns – French ones with wooden wheels, dating from 1898. From these inauspicious beginnings, the regiment slowly evolves – with mishap and occasionally mayhem along the way – into a proud and polished regiment, which in 1942 is declared “the best field regiment in Britain.” By the time the Allied troops land on the beaches in Normandy, the boys of 4th Field are more than ready to go to war.

A bright, solid book ; Trade PB; B&W Illustrations; 0.4 x 9.8 x 6.9 Inches; 242 pages; "Buster is a biography of James Sutherland Brown, CMG, DSO, a distinguished Canadian soldier who advanced from boy bugler to Brigadier General. He was noted for his organizational and planning abilities as well as his humane command. As Assistant Quartermaster General of the 1st Canadian Division he was substantially responsible for the rapid advance of the Division through Mons, Beligium, to the Rhine in the last 100 days of WWI. He also provided for the efficient demobilization of the Canadian Expeditionary Force in 1919-20. As Director of Operations and Intelligence he was the author of Defence Scheme No.1 designed to defend Canada in case of an attack by United States in the 1920s, a plan that has been mocked by academic historians but praised by his colleagues. As District Officer Commanding in Victoria during the Great Depression he managed on a slim budget to get military facilities built and the Militia as prepared as possible in anticipation of WWII. He then lost a confrontation with his immediate superior, General McNaughton, centred on the humane treatment of the unemployed in Relief Camps in the 1930s and consequently he resigned. Though he sought one, he was refused a role in WWII as a result of this clash." Atholl Sutherland Brown was a decorated Beaufighter pilot in the Burma air war. This is a biography of his father

Montreal McGill-Queen's University Press 2005 0773529381 / 9780773529380 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Small crease lower back edge of DJ ; A bright, solid book, DJ in Mylar. ; Carleton Library Series 204; 1.3 x 9.1 x 6 Inches; 392 pages; Canada's most famous contributions to the Allied victory in World War II include Dieppe, the campaign in Italy, the bombing missions over Germany, and D-Day. Much less known are Canada's financial contributions to the war effort. In this sequel to his groundbreaking "Maturing in Hard Times", legendary public servant Robert B. Bryce offers a first-hand account of the wartime activities of the Department of Finance during his formative years as its deputy minister from 1939-47. Bryce chronicles in splendid detail how the tiny and overburdened department in Ottawa worked behind the scenes to deal with the critical public policy challenges that accompanied World War II and postwar reconstruction. Canada's financial aid made it possible for Britain to wage an effective war and deal with the destruction it wrought. Bryce details how Canada's Department of Finance can also be credited with overcoming some of Britain's most pressing balance-of-payments problems after the war.
