Rate this:
Details the toughest decisions that shaped Canada's role in WWII, whose effects continue to this day. Why Canada went to war, defied Britain by organizing its own air force (and training over 100,000 cadets), pivoted to the U.S., and walked into a disaster in Dieppe. Presents the forgotten history of C.D. Howe, Canada's "Minister for Everything" whose wartime powers were almost unrivaled in Canada. How the Corvette, the "ugly little ship the Royal Canadian Navy didn't want," became an enduring symbol of victory against all odds in the Battle of the Atlantic. A new look at the key figures of the war, including William Lyon Mackenzie King, Guy Simonds, and Canada's leading commander, General Henry Crerar. Author is a seasoned journalist and popular military history writer, and has an ear for the vivid and an approachable style for the general reader or armchair historian.
