I bought that book for my son who is interested in military history, and it is a remarkable reference! It is organized like an encyclopedia, but one can also enjoy reading it just by opening it and looking at what every page has to offer, which includes lots of photos, illustrations, maps, etc. Anyone who is interested in military and Canadian history should own this book. The text is rich in details and citations that make every paragraph a pleasure to read. A must have!

This is a beautiful and informative book about Canadian military history. It contains numerous entries on all aspects of this history, stretching back to the early modern period of the 1500s and beyond. What makes this such a great reference book is that it has many interesting entries that speak not just about the events in Canadian military history, but also about the state of the field itself. For example, in an entry under "Autobiography, military," the authors write about why Canadian military veterans have not produced as many autobiographies as their counterparts in Britain and the U.S.A., as well as how the recent slight increase in military writing and military histories has been as a result of more academic interest over the past ten years, among other things. Entries like this are a nice addition to the usual entries on common topics like World War Two.

The book also contains a great "who's who" list of important figures and players in Canadian military history, along with a plethora of beautiful photographs and maps.

I have to admit, when it comes to any Canadian military history book, I tend to approach it cautiously, since unfortunately a lot of them can be quite amateurishly produced and edited. But this one, published as it is by Oxford University Press and written by two giants of the Canadian military history field, is a first-rate work that should be not just on the shelf of those interested in military history, but anyone who claims interest in all things Canadian. Canada has in many ways been shaped by its military history and ties to the U.S. and Britain, as well as the wars Canadians have fought in support of international alliances, and as such, this book demands and deserves respect as an essential part of any library. This is a fun and interesting read, and makes a great book for the library or coffee table of both military history buffs or general readers.
