This book examines the Canadian battles in Northern France during the First and Second World Wars. The Great War battlefields of the Somme, Beaumont-Hamel, Vimy and Arras, and the last Hundred Days campaign are examined in great detail with many never-before-published photographs and detailed maps. The Second World War section contains a chapter on the ill-fated Dieppe raid of August 1942 as well as the 1944 Pursuit to the Seine and Channel Ports battles.
