This work endeavours to explain Canadian Army operations in Normandy during World War II against a backdrop of organization, training and fighting style developed before actual battle.

It explores the Great War experience, the British connection, the interwar period, force development, equipment, staff structure and doctrine.

More specifically, it traces the development of the Canadian overseas army, describes the workings of this roughcast, yet complex fighting force, and critically appraises the performance of Canadian formations in Normandy.

John A. English is the series adviser to the "Praeger Series in War Studies".
