A look inside the next issue of Canadian Naval Review

The next issue of Canadian Naval Review (Vol. 9, No. 2) will be available in early August. Editor Dr. Ann Griffiths has released the Table of Contents and it contains an array of articles on everything from migrant smuggling and protection against piracy to a celebration of naval aviation and a counter argument to the Byers-Webb criticism of the RCN’s submarine project. The writers include a good cross-section of Canadian maritime expertise with many notable figures, Colin Robertson the most prominent among them.
