The Canadian Army performed a pivotal role in the Second World War, which is sometimes almost ignored. This book shows why this error in perception needs to be corrected. MLRS has already published a number of important papers on Canadian operations during the Second World War, and this book gives an overall view of everything the Canadians did to help the military effort against the Axis forces. Canadians guarded Britain, raided German installations (especially Dieppe), and fought through Sicily and Italy before taking part in Operation Overlord and the defeat of Germany. They were also in the Far East, and many Canadians fought in the British Army. This is their account, an honourable story. Includes OrBats for infantry and armoured units in 1945. Illustrated, and with 15 coloured maps.
