The War at Sea
There was a Canadian naval service in the First World War, chiefly employed in coastal patrol and local antisubmarine operations. Its history has been adequately told in the first volume of the Royal Canadian Navy's official history by Tucker, but a newer work by Michael Hadley and Roger Sarty, Tin-pots and pirate ships, puts its operations more cogently within the overall framework of the war. A new official history of the Navy, planned by the Department of National Defence, will use recently released documents to bring new scholarship on the naval questions of the First World War.
