Short illustrated history of the Canadian forces during World War II
Canada was the first country to send troops in Britain in 1939. During 1939-45 nundreds of thousands of Canadians enlisted - more than 40 per cent of male population between the ages of 18 and 45, and virtually all of them volunteers. Canadians fought with tragic courage at Hong Kong and Dieppe; with growing strenght and confidence in Sicily, Italy and Normandy; and finally provided an entire Army for the liberation of NW Europe. This concise account of of an extraodinary national effort is supported by a complete list of infantry and armoured units, photos, and eight colour plates by Canadas most knowledgeable military illustrator.
