190 pp, oblong 8vo (8 5/8" H x 10 5/8" D). B&w photographss, drawings. "HMCS Swansea is the story of a ship. Just one of Canada's several hundred warships. It is also the story of the men who served in her, and of other ships who operated with her, in war time in EG-9, and in peacetime in her various training roles. It is a representative tale that could have been told, and has been, of any one of a hundred similar ships of the Royal Canadian Navy. So why this particular ship? Because HMCS Swansea is typical, yet atypical. Typical in that she participated in the Battle of the Atlantic in the same way as her sister frigates; atypical in that she was involved in the destruction of four U-boats, more than any other RCN ship. And it was in this role of hunter-killer that she was absolutely the best." Book is slightly cocked, has light soiling on bottom edge of boards, faint erased pencil marks at top corner of free front endpaper. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, minor wrinkling at top of spine, slight fading to spine colour, very small scuff mark (no colour loss) on front panel.
