Occupied St John's : A Social History of a City at War, 1939-1945 Paperback / softback

Edited by Steven High

Description

In January 1941, the hulking twenty-one thousand ton troopship Edmund B.

Alexander docked in St John's harbor, carrying a thousand American soldiers sent to join the thousands of Canadian troops protecting Newfoundland against attack by Germany.

France had fallen, Great Britain was fighting for its survival, and Newfoundland - then a dominion of Britain - was North America's first line of defence.

Although the German invasion never came, St John's found itself occupied by both Allied Canadian and American forces.
