A century ago, the Naval Service Act of 1910 was passed and the Canadian Navy came into existence. For the first time, Canada could protect and fight for its own waters rather than relying on Britain's Royal Navy. From the Atlantic Coast to British Columbia, Canadians are remembering the selfless men and women who have served their country in times of war and peace.
Celebrate 100 years of protection, peacekeeping and tradition with these books about the Canadian Navy. The famous vessels, the influential commanders, the tragedies and the triumphs, two World Wars, pictorial histories, the shipyards, and the challenge of patrolling coastlines thousands of miles apart are covered in depth.
