My Submarine Books

The Canadian submarine service has overcome repeated attempts to sink it since 1914. Surprise, controversy, political expediency, and naval man-ipulation overflow its ninety-five year history. Heroes, eccentrics and ordinary people populate this extraordinary story, epitomizing the true essence of the service. 

Through a Canadian Periscope offers a colourful and thoroughly researched account of Canada's silent service from its unexpected inauguration in British Columbia on the first day of the Great War to the present day.

Deeply Canadian: New Submarines for a New Millennium is a book for everyone who is interested in naval history. It begins where the success-ful Through a Canadian Periscope ended and tells the story of how Canada nearly lost her submarine service in the 1990s after decades of dedicated duty.        

An enjoyable read, Deeply Canadian explains why Canada selected used conventional submarines for the 21st century and follows the bedeviled Victoria class acquisition program against the backdrop of our submarine heritage and naval-political history.
