360 pp, 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w illustrations. German submarines penetrated Canadian waters during the Second World War to within 172 miles of Quebec City. They sank ships, landed spies, laid mines, built an automated weather station, undertook forays to rescue escaped German POW's, and forced the Canadian government to close the St. Lawrence River and Gulf to Allied shipping. Hadley focuses on the exploits of the U-boats and the Canadian response. Wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very minor wear at corners. Dust jacket has very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning at top edge of flaps.
