I picked up another interesting Canadian title: Cargo of Lies: The True Story of a Nazi Double Agent in Canada by Dean Beeby. Have you seen this title?
Liked your focus on military history, ancient history, science fiction, and espionage fiction ... and the fact you've posted 600+ reviews. So I marked yours as an Interesting library, which I use primarily as a means of scanning reviews (esp of titles not in my library). Just so you know!
Many things starting with all the books I did not read and a shared interest in Flashman which shows that serious subjects can at times be treated with humour. I also like history as today's world issues are often "remembrances of things past".
I see that you acquired the War in the St. Lawrence: The Forgotten U-Boat Battles on Canada's Shores: The History of Canada by Roger Sarty.

I am still apparently the only non-Canadian in possession of this title.


I recently purchased War in the St. Lawrence: The Forgotten U-Boat Battles on Canada's Shores: The History of Canada by Roger Sarty.

It is an excellent, well-sourced book and worthy purchase.


I just visited my local used book store and found another good Canadian naval title: Sink All the Shipping There: The Wartime Loss of Canada's Merchant Ships and Fishing Schooners by Fraser M. McKee.

I had never heard of this title before seeing it on the shelf at the bookstore.
