This action-packed, first-hand account chronicles the mission of Canada's most famous naval warship from her commissioning in 1943 to her return to Halifax for a refit in late 1944. The ship began her career on convoy duty from Britain to Murmansk, and the book includes a vivid description ofthe battle between the HMS Duke of York and the German Scharnhorst that led to the Scharnhorst's destruction. Haida went on to patrol the French coast in the months leading up to D-Day, and then with her sister ships guarded the Western Approaches on D-Day itself, sinking two German destroyers andcrippling two more. Commander William Sclater witnessed these events first-hand, and his description - together with paintings by Grant Macdonald - provides a vivid recounting of the heroic days of the Second World War.
