About this book

In 1911, Winston S. Churchill and Robert L. Borden became companions in an attempt to provide naval security for the British Empire as a naval crisis loomed with Germany. Their scheme for Canada to provide battleships for the Royal Navy as part of an Imperial squadron was rejected by the Senate with great implications for the future.

Reviews

“A book on Anglo-Canadian naval relations is a rare beast and, as such, Martin Thornton’s work is to be welcomed. It examines in some detail the Naval Aid Bill put forward by Robert Borden and the Conservatives in December 1912. … the book is a useful addition to the Canadian side of this important episode and therefore deserves two cheers from Canadianists … .” (Tony McCulloch, BJCS – British Journal of Canadian Studies, Vol. 29 (1), 2016)
