HASH(0xa4ef41d4) su 5 stelle A BADLY WRITTEN, BUT IMPORTANT WORK 22 luglio 2015
Di RICH - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This is an important book. Sadly, it is also (almost 40 years after it was first published) a difficult book to read. Written (and then rewritten) by a Lt.-Commander aboard HMCS Haida, one of Canada's "Tribal" WW II destroyers, the book won the Governor General's Award for non-fiction back in 1947. That it did so reflects, I suspect, the fervent patriotism still rampant after WW II, more than anything else except, perhaps the fact that this book was--and remains--unique in that it captures the essence of life aboard a Canadian warship from bridge to boiler room. In doing so, it also offers what has to be one of the first attempts to chronicle the part the Royal Canadian Navy played in the eventual victory that was to come.

Despite reworking the original manuscript and having (presumably) an editor at his disposal, Sclater's work is overwritten and mawkish. So, don't read it expecting typical "award-winning" prose.

In spite of these storytelling shortcomings, Sclater's accounts of sea action STILL hold the reader's interest, especially the vicious engagements of the type that doomed sister Tribal, HMCS Athabaskan. Today, the book's importance comes from its attempt to share the detail of life aboard ship and, as the war entered its final post-D-Day period, Haida's journey from North Atlantic convoy escort to allied fighting ship based out of Plymouth.. Today, (2015) very few men who lived aboard these ships remain. Without this book, these details would be lost with their passing.

Great first person account of battles that most people have never heard of. Excellent book.
