Über diesen Titel
Bluenose carried dangerous and essential war supplies, was stopped by Nazi Submarines and fired on by the U.S. Coast Guard! Ernest Hemingway, The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, spies, gun battles in the streets, all intertwined in Bluenose war time struggles! This exciting story is only available in this book.From the Back Cover:
She had been famous as a racer before the Americans, Jesse Spalding III and Thomas Higgins II bought her. When World War II came along, it was inevitable that she would serve in it.
Her mission was to carry deadly cargoes of munitions and dynamite through the submarine infested waters of the Caribbean. This was made possible through her superior speed and maneuverability.
Spalding lovingly details the World War II adventures of the Bluenose. He also tells of life in Cuba, the home base of the Bluenose during the war. Cuba had a "Casablanca" atmosphere, with spies, celebrities and the wealthy all sharing in war struggles. Spalding tells intriguing stories about such figures as Ernest Hemingway and the Duke of Windsor. This book is more than a story of a great ship. It presents a fascinating panorama of a way of life that has vanished.
Andrew Higgins, the son of Spalding's partner, adds to the story with interviews of others who were involved. Andrew includes his own research as well as photos, documents and family letters that existed during the war. Andrew looks at the war time struggles of a great ship through the eyes of those involved.
Indeed the war years of Canada's Bluenose were spent making a fascinating and valuable difference in the allied war effort.
