The History of HMCS Oakville

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.
