Frigates of the Royal Canadian Navy 1943-1974

By MacPherson, Ken
1998,
ISBN 0920277225
Hardcover, 109 pages

Descripton: It is extraordinary that one seldom hears of the finest anti-submarine vessels built in Canada during the entire Second World War: frigates. Frigates, initially dubbed "twin-screw corvettes" were designed by William Reed of Smith's Dock company. They were to prove their worth as ocean escorts and were important contributors to victory over the U-boats. Perhaps because of their late arrival on the scene, wartime photographs of frigates are now scarce. The purpose of this book is to reproduce more than one illustration of each ship, especially those that were rebuilt to "Prestonian class" configuration after the war.
