    Dated, but ok. A good introduction to the Canadian Army in the Second World War. Chappell's artwork stands the test of time; only big gaffe is the mis-spelling of "Winnipeg" on the RWR shoulder title in the colour plates! Also the use of the Boot, High Top would have been more appropriate for a "D-Day" figure. Otherwise, these plates are actually, in my opinion, superior to more recent work by Chappell and absolutely on a par with Volstad. Meat of the text is adequate; not much attention paid to Dated, but ok. A good introduction to the Canadian Army in the Second World War.

Otherwise, these plates are actually, in my opinion, superior to more recent work by Chappell and absolutely on a par with Volstad. Meat of the text is adequate; not much attention paid to post-1945 and very incomplete with regards to Unification and the new CF uniform - a complex subject in itself, just unraveling the Corporal/Master Corporal rank badges from the 1970 period will drive a serious researcher to drink. In fact, post-1953 gets exactly one paragraph, and a closing sentence. If you are interested in the period after the Korean war, you won't find a single thing of use here - time for Osprey to put out a new title. But as far as a sketch history of the Canadian Army in South Africa and the world wars, not a bad start at all. Second World War buffs are pointed to the other MAA title CANADIAN FORCES IN WORLD WAR TWO for a much better treatment. There is probably no better First World War primer. Equipment buffs are better off with several other titles including Tangled Web by Summers and '37 Web by Ed Storey. No real sidebar articles to speak of, no description of rank insignia or command structures, no description of organization.
