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.
