About the Book

Originally published in 1993, The Generals is a collective biography of the Canadian army’s leaders in World War II, and is the winner of the Dafoe Book Prize for International Relations and the UBC Medal for Canadian Biography. The only book of its kind on this subject, The Generals remains an invaluable resource for academics, policy makers, and anyone interested Canada’s military history. This new edition features an introduction by Dr. David J. Bercuson, Director of the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies at the University of Calgary.
