Product Description

Review

They were the men who led our nation in war and peace. In world wars, they were the steady hands guiding our forces to victory; in peacekeeping, they helped to establish and preserve order. Over the years they have helped the Canadian Forces to become one of the proudest militaries in the world.

Warrior Chiefs: Perspectives on Senior Canadian Military Leaders is the first book of a two-part series that examines the unique Canadian experience and outlook in regard to Generalship and the Art of the Admiral. This first volume is a compendium of biographies of the nation's most notable military leaders from Confederation to the post-Cold War era. Personalities include: Sir William Otter, Sir Sam Hughes, E.L.M. Burns, G.G. Simonds, Charles Foulkes, Andy McNaughton, J.V. Allard, and J. Dextraze, to name only a few.

About the Author

Lieutenant-Colonel Bernd Horn, Ph.D., is a serving officer in the Canadian Forces and faculty member at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario.

Stephen Harris, Ph.D., is a military historian with the Department of National Defence Directorate of History and Heritage.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A bit uneven, a collection of essays on different leaders by different authors. Some sections are tilted toward opinions and analysis, which is fine is you are already familiar with the facts. I found the Simonds section particularly irksome.

Warrior Chiefs - A must Read Jan. 2 2013
By Dennis Grover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Haven't finished the book yet but the 3/4 I have read replete with fresh and effectively
presented perspectives. A book I will retain and definitely recommend. Copies should be located in every library in Canada.
