"During the Battle of the Atlantic, Dr. George Hendry had just finished performing two major surgical operations on board t he destroyer HMCS Ottawa when his ship was ambushed by 13 German U-boats. Canadian warships like Ottawa had inadequate radar sets that were incapable of detecting submarines approaching in the dark. On September 13, 1942, U-91 stole in and t o r p e d o ed Ottawa, sinking her in 20 minutes. Utterly exhausted, Dr. Hendry was lost along with 113 of his shipmates. George Hendry was a much-loved man, a great university athlete, and a very good doctor. Unfortunately, he was also naive and t oo t ru st in g. One night in January 1941, he committed a very foolish indiscretion. He would spend the rest of his tragically short life making amends for this mistake." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has some areas of ve ry lig ht edg e w rinkling, very light rubbing. Very Good+/Very Good+
