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

This book 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 contemporary and historical maps and photographs, the book features detailed information for visitors to the battlefields, memorials and cemeteries that commemorate the sacrifices of Canadian men and women in World War II.
