BOOK - Shock Troops, Canadians Fighting the Great War 1917-1917 - Volume Two
By Tim Cook
Published by Penguin Canada, Toronto, 2009

Softcover......26.00 (C$)

Highly acclaimed and comprehensive, Shock Troops follows the Canadian forces during the titanic battles of Vimy Ridge, Passchendaele, and the Hundred Days campaign. Through the eyes of foot soldiers who fought and died in the trenches on the Western Front, and based on newly uncovered archival sources, this book builds on volume I of Tim Cook's national bestseller, At the Sharp End.

The Canadian fighting forces never lost a battle during the final two years of the war, and although they paid a terrible price in the killing fields of the Great War, they were indeed, as British Prime Minister David Lloyd George exclaimed, the shock troops of the Empire.
