Robert Banks graduated from Royal Military College (RMC) and went on to become a military pilot, flight surgeon, NASA consultant, and author of several scientific papers. His published articles cover topics including the histories of air force and naval squadrons, the Second World War, and the historic buildings of RMC. His book Warriors and Warships offers a long overdue look at a much-neglected part of Canada’s military history: the warships built at Point Frederick, near Kingston, Ontario, from the late eighteenth century to the mid-nineteenth century, and the people who built them. Splitting his time between Ontario and Texas, Robert is a tremendous speaker and presenter on a wide variety of topics including Canadian history, nautical history, and military history.
