Canadian operations to clear the Scheldt Estuary 1944

This is a complete description of Canadian operations to clear the Scheldt Estuary, which seems to have been forgotten in the rush forward after the capture of Antwerp. It became very clear that Antwerp was of no use to the Allies as a supply port while the Germans controlled the estuary leading to the port, and the Canadians were allocated the task of clearing the Germans out. This is a very clear and effective account of the operations and looks at all aspects of the pre-assault planning as well as the attacks themselves. This report fills a gap in military history in that little is written about the error, nor of Canadian operations in the area. Complete with all appendices.
