The Canadian Expeditionary Force was the largest military force ever fielded by Canada in its day. The management of this force of five divisions, with four in the field, was a challenge to Canada’s predominantly amateur Staff. Borrowing heavily from British practice the Canadians nonetheless had specific challenges that were theirs alone.
David Love has adroitly described the organization and administration of the CEF and delves into a level of detail previously unimaginable.
Divided into two hard cover volumes and exceeding 400 pages of descriptive text this title is a ‘must have’ for the historian, amateur or professional, of Canadian military history.
