One of the great untold Canadian military stories revolves around the eastern seaport of Sydney, Nova Scotia. Guardian of the Gulf offers a vivid and long overdue account of Sydney harbour's role, and the importance of its coal deposits, in North Atlantic strategy and military operations from the Anglo French wars of the 18th century to the end of the Cold War in the 1990s. During the two world wars of the 20th century, Sydney became a major convoy port in the merchant ship lifeline that sustained Britain with supplies from North America. Essential to the air and naval forces that pursued German submarines in the waters off the east coast of Canada, Sydney was also an important industrial centre that produced enormous quantities of critically important coal and steel. Exploring the roles of army, navy, air force and merchant marine, Tennyson and Sarty offer richly detailed information on garrisons, fortifications, base development and maritime warfare.
