Anatomy of A DestroyerUnknown - 2007
HMCS Haida is the most decorated ship in Canadian history, remembered for her contributions during the Second World War, Korean War, Cold War, and well known as a popular tourist site for visitors to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The actual deeds of this great ship-all that she accomplished over the course of her long career-have been well covered. HMCS Haida: Anatomy of a Destroyer presents a new side of the story: not what Haida did, but the material side of the means of how she did it. Key aspects of the ship's life shown in pictures give the reader a glimpse into the vessel's world. From the technical side of things (command and control systems, weapons, and propulsion) to the life of the ship's company (where they ate and slept, what they did for recreation, how they coped with frigid arctic waters as they battled German U-boats in the Second World War-and how a bunny became Haida's first mascot), the pictures and captions tell the stories of the life of this amazing ship.
