Courage at Sea: Newfoundland Sailors in the Great War is a collection of more than forty World War I stories involving the Newfoundland Royal Naval Reserve and the Newfoundland merchant seamen who delivered goods to Europe in aid of the Allied war effort. Many foreign-going vessels carrying Newfoundlanders were apprehended en route by German U-boats and shelled, torpedoed, or boarded and bombed. Some of the crews were let go, but others were less fortunate. Some of the stories included are... o Newfoundland's First Decoration: Leander Green's Storm o Men of Burgeo o Rendezvous with the Enemy o Torpedoed Three Times in Three Weeks o The Story of Michael Foley, Harbour Grace o Dictator's Crew as Prisoners of War o A War off Saint Pierre: SS Erik o Great Honours to a Man from Pilley's Island o The Halifax Explosion: A Reservist Writes Home o... plus many more.
