In the hundred years ending in 1930, an estimated 2.8 million Canadians moved south of the 49th Parallel and settled in the United States. The human and technical resources they brought made Canadian immigrants integral to the growth of New England, the Great Lakes region, and the west coast. Crossing the 49th Parallel is the first book to encompass that entire, continent-wide population shift. It brings Canadian migration to the center of both Canadian and U.S. history.Bruno Ramirez researches the contents of previously unused border records to bring to light the wide variety of local contexts and historical circumstances that led Canadian men, women, and children to cross the border and become key actors in the U.S. economy and society. Ramirez goes beyond these statistical data, consulting qualitative sources and case studies to reveal the motives and aspirations of individuals and family groups.The comparative perspective of Crossing the 49th Parallel allows Ramirez to explain the distinctive roles of French- and Anglo-Canadians in the immigrant movement. By shifting the viewpoint from a continental to a transatlantic one, Ramirez also unveils Canada's important role in international migration; it served as a temporary destination for many Europeans who subsequently remigrated to the United States.

The pursuit of German U-boats in the Battle of the Atlantic has long been considered one of the most exciting stories of World War II. This definitive study takes readers into the cockpits and onto the flight decks of the versatile and hardy U.S. escort carriers (CVEs) to tell of their vital yet little-known contributions to the anti-U-boat campaign. Sailing apart from the Allied convoys, the CVEs had complete freedom of action and frequently went on "hunt and kill" missions, allowing the German submarines no respite. Naval historian William Y'Blood explains here that in the eighteen months between the spring of 1943 - when the CVEs began to prowl the Atlantic - and November 1944, the average number of U-boats in daily operation was reduced from 108 to a mere 31. Though others helped win the Battle of the Atlantic, the influence of the escort carrier groups was profound. In addition to documenting the CVEs' operational history, this book also traces their development and construction and examines their tactical and strategic uses.
