Canadians at War Vol.2 (ePDF): A Guide to the Battlefields and Memorials of World War II
Susan Evans Shaw (Author)

ePDF version

France. Italy. Hong Kong. Northwest Europe. Canadian soldiers fought on several fronts during World War II. Costly battles and campaigns like those at Dieppe, in Sicily, on the beaches of Normandy, and during the liberation of Holland proved the mettle of soldiers, airmen, and their commanders.

Canadians at War Vol. 2: A Guide to the Battlefields and Memorials of World War II, a follow-up to Evans Shaw’s popular Canadians at War Vol. 1: A Guide to the Battlefields of World War I, begins with the preparations for war and then tracks the route of the Canadian battle groups and regiments as they fought across Europe and in the Pacific. Supplemented with maps and contemporary photographs, this book features detailed information on the battlefields, memorials, and cemeteries, as well as chapters on the Canadian Forestry Group, the Canadian Women’s Army Corps Overseas, prisoners of war, and how to research a Canadian soldier who fought in World War II.

This volume is a must-have for those interested in heritage tourism and World War II and for the families of veterans and is an ideal complement to Evans Shaw’s World War I companion volume.
