A Kiwi Sailor at War
Doug Hazard was one of 7,000 young men who were sent to Britain during the Second World War to help man the rapidly expanding Royal Navy. After six months escorting North Sea convoys he trained as an officer. He then took part in escorting convoys to East Africa, Canada via the cruel North Atlantic and Russia. He took part in the sinking of several German U-Boats. On his return to New Zealand with a wife and child, Doug became well known as an accountant and yachtsman.
This is the seventh book on New Zealand naval history written by Gerry Wright.
