A beautifully crafted graphic novel, tracing the achievements of the Canadian Forces in the Second World War.
In 1914, Canada went to war as a subject of Britain. In 1939, it made the choice to fight all on its own.Canada at War follows the developments and setbacks, wins and losses, of a nation learning to stand up for itself in the midst of the most difficult war of the 20th century.

In graphic-novel format, fully illustrated and in full colour, Canada at War shows the growth of a nation's army, navy and air force through movingly depicted triumphs and tragedies. From the disheartening losses at Dieppe and Hong Kong through the Battle of the Atlantic and the invasion of Sicily, it focuses on the human dimension of the key battles and decisions that ultimately swung the war in the Allies' favour.

This poignant graphic account ends, after the victories of D-Day and Juno Beach and the liberation of Europe, with a final reckoning of the legacy these storied years have had on a country forged through war. Aimed at both adult and young adult readers, this very human history tells the stories behind some of this country's most distinguishing military moments.

This dry text-bookish summary of Canada's involvement in World War II is made more interesting by effective military themed full color graphics. Canada's involvement in World War II is often understated; by the end of the war, Canada was the third largest military power in the world. Note that this book assumes that you already have a fairly good understanding of the overall history of World War II.

It doesn't quite do any one thing in a noteworthy manner.
The narrator and all the text reads straight out of a textbook, and the art is fairly bland.
