Painting the map red : Canada and the South African War, 1899-1902 by Carman Miller( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In October 1899, before the outbreak of the war in South Africa, Sam Hughes, the maverick Conservative imperialist, predicted ominously that the map of Africa would be painted Empire red only through the shedding of blood. By the time the Anglo-Boer War ended in May 1902, 7,368 young soldiers and 16 nurses had sailed from Canada for South Africa. About 270 died there, killed in battle or by disease. For almost three years the Canadian public was mesmerized by the war. It affected trade, industry, transportation, fashion, discourse, literature, graphics, and music

A war of patrols : Canadian Army operations in Korea by William Cameron Johnston( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A War of Patrols is a comprehensive account of the Canadian campaign in Korea. It provides the first detailed study of the training, leadership, operations, and tactics of the brigade under each of its three wartime commanders, and of its relationship with American and Commonwealth allies. An impeccably researched analytical history, the book examines the often uneven performance of the various Canadian units and argues that the soldiers of the "Special Force" initially sent to Korea were more thorough and professional in their operations than were the army's regular battalions that eventually replaced them at the front." "The Korean War has often been characterized as Canada's "forgotten" war. The revisionist interpretations in A War of Patrols will be of tremendous significance to both academic and military professionals. All readers will be intrigued by this fresh look at an important part of Canada's military past."--Jacket

The Canadian Rangers : a living history by P. Whitney Lackenbauer( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Canadian Rangers stand sentinel in the farthest reaches of our country. For six decades, this dedicated group of citizen-soldiers has quietly served as Canada's eyes, ears, and voice in isolated coastal and northern communities. How does this minimally trained and lightly equipped force make a meaningful contribution to national defence and to sustainable communities? One of Canada's leading experts on northern issues answers this question using official records, extensive interviews, and on-the-ground participation in Ranger exercises from coast to coast to coast. The Canadian Rangers also tells the untold story of a successful partnership that has developed between the Canadian Forces and Aboriginal peoples, a partnership rooted in traditional knowledge and skills and characterized by acceptance and crosscultural understanding. P. Whitney Lackenbauer is an associate professor and chair of the Department of History at St. Jerome's University"--Provided by publisher

Veterans with a vision : Canada's war blinded in peace and war by Serge Marc Durflinger( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We know something about our war dead but almost nothing about our war wounded. Veterans with a Vision provides a vibrant, poignant, and very human history of Canada's war-blinded veterans and of the organization they founded in 1922, the Sir Arthur Pearson Association of War Blinded. Serge Durflinger details the veterans' process of civil re-establishment, physical and psychological rehabilitation, and social and personal coping and describes their public advocacy for government pension entitlements, job retraining, and other social programs. This book captures the spirit of perseverance that permeated the veterans' community and highlights the accomplishments of the war blinded as advocates for all Canadian veterans and for all blind citizens."--Pub. desc
The soldiers' general : Bert Hoffmeister at war by Douglas E Delaney( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Self-doubt so plagued him that he suffered a nervous breakdown even before fighting his first combat action. But by the end of the Second World War, Bert Hoffmeister had exorcised his anxieties, risen from Captain to Major-General, and won more awards than any other Canadian officer in the war. Fighting from the invasion of Sicily in July 1943 to the final victory in Europe in May 1945, this native Vancouverite earned a reputation for being a fearless commander on the battlefield, one who led from the front, one who led from the front and was well loved by those he commanded. How did he do it?" "The Soldiers' General explains how Hoffmeister conducted his business as a military commander. Douglas Delaney dissects Hoffmeister's numerous battles to reveal how he managed and how he led, how he directed and how he inspired. An exemplary leader, Hoffmeister stood out among his contemporaries not so much for his technical ability to move the chess pieces well as for his ability to get the chess pieces to move themselves."--Jacket
