A Large and Splendid Fleet

A Large and Splendid Fleet

by Charles Coffin

A valuable addition to the history of shipbuilding in Canada and more broadly to the story of the Canadian industrial war effort during the First World War. The book explains the background and launch of the government program; explores the fifteen shipyards across the country that produced the ships; and then details the lives and stories of the ships that came from those yards. An excellent book for researchers as well as for those simply interested in one aspect of what Canadians did in our shipyards and at sea as a result of the Great War.
