During World War II Canadian shipyards built more than four hundred merchant ships, most of them 10,000-ton cargo ships. For the first time this extraordinary accomplishment is described in detail, including the design of the so-called "Forts and Parks" ships, their construction, and each ship's operation and history. Also provided is a fold-out plan, to scale, of the British ship from which the Canadian program originated.
