This look at corvette HMCS Oakville and the later Royal Cana­dian Sea Cadet Corps Oakville, named for one of the towns in On­tario that were once con­sid­ered the eco­nomic en­gine driv­ing Canada. Au­thor Sean E Liv­ingston is a serv­ing Sea Cadet of­fi­cer in Oakville and this is be­lieved to be his first book. The au­thor has done a cred­i­ble job with the text and makes a fine ad­di­tion to Oakville and Royal Cana­dian Navy his­tory. The ma­jor dis­ap­point­ment from the book was the print­ing. While color images were in­cluded, the reader is left with the feel­ing it was run off on the of­fice pho­to­copier and sent off to have a per­fect bind­ing cover added. Would make a good Christ­mas gift for Sea Cadets in the On­tario re­gion.
