Amsterdam University Press
The ships of the Jacob van Heemskerck class of the Royal Netherlands Navy were constructed as specialized air defense frigates. The two ships that were built served for about twenty years in the R.N.N. Since 2005, both ships are in service as the Almirante Latorre class in the Chilean Navy.
Rindert van Zinderen-Bakker (1944) was principal of the Jan Tin Bergen College in Roosendaal and was interested in model building from an early age. This is his book about the HMCS Haida.
