Immediately following Pearl Harbour, the United States shipping facilities in the Pacific were running at full capacity, but it was still not enough to combat the serious Japanese threat. At this critical juncture, Prince Rupert, located in British Columbia, Canada, was placed at America’s disposal, to ship troops and materials to Alaska to fend off the enemy. It was, as many called it, an “American Invasion.” With Japanese submarines lurking off of Prince Rupert, thousands of Canadian Army, Navy, and Air Force, were posted to man the fort defence system, fly reconnaissance missions, and protect the dry dock and shipyard, all vital to the Pacific war effort. All eyes were peeled for the enemy. The City was truly at war. Drawing from a diverse field of information, making use of published, primary, first hand recollections, and photographs, this book puts the events and developments of these years all together into one definitive source.
