About this item

The magisterial second volume of Tim Cook's definitive account of Canadians fighting in the Second World War.     Historian Tim Cook displays his trademark storytelling ability in the second volume of his masterful account of Canadians in World War II. Cook combines an extraordinary grasp of military strategy with a deep empathy for the soldiers on the ground, at sea and in the air. Whether it's a minute-by-minute account of a gruelling artillery battle, vicious infighting among generals, the scene inside a medical unit, or the small details of a soldier's daily life, Cook creates a compelling narrative. He recounts in mesmerizing detail how the Canadian forces figured in the Allied bombing of Germany, the D-Day landing at Juno beach, the taking of Caen, and the drive south.Featuring dozens of black-and-white photographs and moving excerpts from letters and diaries of servicemen,Fight to the Finish is a memorable account of Canadians who fought abroad and of the home front that was changed forever.
