The history of the Canadian Army, began when the title first came into official use in November 1940, during the Second World War, and is still used today. Although the official titles, Force Mobile Command, and later Land Force Command, were used from February 1968 to August 2011, "Canadian Army" continued to be unofficially used to refer to the ground forces of the Canadian Armed Forces, much as it has been from Confederation in 1867 to the present.

This book is a decent primer for high school level students (especially Canadian ones who should study the country's rich military history). It shines when it covers the growing independence of Canada from colonialism. Canadian Forces arguably performed better when untethered from British command (Vimy versus Dieppe). This book gets really slim when addressing Korea and Canada's UN commitments. An update and broadening of content is in order.

A 1996 reprint of the 1985 volume, this book provides a complete overview of the Canadian Army from its involvement in the South African War in 1900 where they won 4 VC's, to the massive mobilisation for its committment to the battles of attrition of World War One at Ypres, the Somme and Passschendaele, and on into World War Two. Their campaigns in the Pacific, at Dieppe, the Mediterranean and North-West Europe are well covered, and also UN involvement post-war.
Another beautifully illustrated and well-researched book from Mike Chappell. It ranks equal with his other titles in the Osprey range on Battle Insignia, Battledress, and British Infantry Equipments.

A very good introduction to the Canadian Army in World War Two. Chappell's artwork stands the test of time; only big gaffe is the mis-spelling of "Winnipeg" on the RWR shoulder title in the colour plates!! Also the use of the Boot, High Top would have been more appropriate for a "D-Day" figure. Otherwise, these plates are actually, in my opinion, superior to more recent work by Chappell and absolutely on a par with Volstad.

Meat of the text is adequate; not much attention paid to post-1945 and very incomplete with regards to Unification and the new CF uniform - a complex subject in itself, just unravelling the Corporal/Master Corporal rank badges from the 1970 period will drive a serious researcher to drink! In fact, Post 1953 gets exactly one paragraph, and a closing sentence. If you are interested in post Korea, you won't find a single thing of use here - time for Osprey to put out a new title!

But as far as a sketch history of the Canadian Army in South Africa, World War One and World War Two, not a bad start at all. World War Two buffs are pointed to the other MAA title CANADIAN FORCES IN WORLD WAR TWO for a much better treatment. There is probably no better World War One primer. Equipment buffs are better off with several other titles including Tangled Web by Summers and '37 Web by Ed Storey.

No real sidebar articles to speak of, no description of rank insignia or command structures, no description of organization.

WW II uniform buffs are pointed to Bouchery, or my own books DRESSED TO KILL and CANUCK.
