2014 will mark the 100th anniversary of Canadian submarines, as well as the first year of the Great War. The history of submarines in Canada continues to be written, and seldom in as readable a form as the books by Julie H. Ferguson. Through A Canadian Periscope: The Story of the Canadian Submarine Service came out in 1995, and is now out of print. Ms. Ferguson reports, however, that it will be reprinted in 2014 and once again available.
In the words of one reviewer: “The
Canadian Submarine Service owes Ferguson a debt of gratitude for the effort she
has put into a fine book. Students will enjoy experiencing this little known
part of Canada's naval history.”—Ian Stewart, Winnipeg Public Library.
Not content with her first
installment of the Canadian submarine story, Ms. Ferguson followed up with New Submarines For A New Millenium,
picking up where her earlier book left off, detailing the abortive nuclear
submarine program and subsequent developments in the world of Canadian
Julie Ferguson’s other books, and
related services to writers, can be explored at www.beaconlit.com.
