Author Talk: Ted Barris

Ted Barris, author of several bestselling Canadian military history books, will speak about his most recent title: Battle of the Atlantic: Gauntlet to Victory.

The Battle of the Atlantic, Canada’s longest continuous military engagement of the Second World War, lasted 2,074 days, claiming the lives of more than 4,000 men and women in the Royal Canadian Navy, the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Canadian merchant navy. The years 2019 to 2025 mark the eightieth anniversary of the longest battle of the Second World War, the Battle of the Atlantic. It also proved to be the war’s most critical and dramatic battle of attrition.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event.
