The Canadian Army and the Normandy Campaign: A Study of Failure in High Command

Synopsis

This book is a unique case study of the impact of a peacetime army--its history, organization and command structures, doctrines, and level of training--on the subsequent operation of large field forces in battle. Drawing on a variety of archival sources, the author presents new information on attempts to prepare inadequately trained troops for battle during World War II, together with a critical analysis of the Canadian army's performance in the late stages of the war.
