316 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs, maps. "Here, in all its passion and drama, is the story of how the Canadian Army, Navy, and Air Force fought during the Second World War, from the Battle of Hong Kong to the Rhine River crossing and the significant part Canadians played in the Allied victory. David Bercuson, one of Canada's top military historians, covers the war on the ground, the naval war in the North Atlantic and elsewhere, and the air war - both the bomber offensive and the story of those Canadians who flew everything from Canso Reconnaissance aircraft in the Indian Ocean to Typhoon fighter bombers with the Second Tactical Air Force in Europe. And he does it through recounting the stories of men and women who were there." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket is clean and bright.
