198 pp, oblong 8vo, (8 3/4" H x 11 1/2" D). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, maps and colour reproductions - wonderful pictorial end papers of Athabaskan at speed. "The Athabaskan was the second of the Canadian Tribal Class Destroyers, sister ship to the Haida. The story of Athabaskan's life and death has been lovingly retrieved from forgotten archives and her daily log. In her short life she was pounded by the sea and battered by bombs, gunfire, and torpedoes. She spent her finest and final hours fighting alongside her sisters in the 10th Flotilla in 1944, helping to clear the English Channel of enemy ships prior to the invasion. 'Unlucky Lady' is a memorial - to a ship, to the men who served her, and to Canadians who served at sea more than forty years ago." Book is slightly cocked, has small bump at top corner of boards. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, small tears at top of flap-folds - archivally taped; 4" repaired tear with creases, wrinkles and some delamination at bottom of front panel, 1" tear archivally taped at bottom of front flap-fold, very light rubbing and a few tiny dints on front panel.
