    1. A beautifully illustrated history in Graphic Novel style of Canada s role in World War II The pictures are stunning and really drive the story The text is a little dry but that s largely a factor of trying to get to the information in short bursts A wonderful introduction to a pivotal time in the development of a Canadian national identity.


    2. Medium rare I wanted a basic understanding of Canada s involvement in WW2 and I got it That said, it was kind of a dry read.


    3. I really didn t like this book and that makes me quite sad I am a historian specifically about Canada during WWII so perhaps that bias is coming through I thought the idea of a graphic novel about our war effort was a good idea but it turned out very clunky in my opinion I felt like the book never really found it s audience At times it got very specific about plane models and statistics and things meant for one audience and then it would switch into propaganda pieces about how amazing Canada is [...]


    4. I saw this at the library, and since I like graphic novels and want to learn about Canadian history, being a new Canadian, I decided to give it a try I ended up learning quite a lot Having been educated in the U.S I was unfamiliar with the extent of Canada s participation in World War II I enjoyed learning about the various campaigns of the war, marvelling at the feats of engineering and bravery from the different branches of the Canadian military, and despairing at the defeats My only complain [...]


    5. a highly useful and constructive tool for teaching the history of Canada s role in world war 2 illustrates how important and complex it was and doesn t shy away from the messy realities of combat it has a difficult task of standing in the camps of broad generalization and blow by blow account at the same time and doesn t always work it inadvertently raises questions that aren t addressed unless you do your own research with the assistance of the recommended reading page included at the end one p [...]


    6. Originally reviewed at Jayne s Books.Since I knew the broad strokes of the Canadian involvement during World War Two and had a good sense of the war overall, I found this book to be a little simple at times, but nonetheless, I found the book to be very informative in regards to various battles that the Canadian military was involved in during this time period I read this as a library download from FVRL Fraser Valley Regional Library and found that it took time for the book to load quickly, due t [...]


    7. This is essentially facts with pictures, no real story Names, dates, places, mistakes, all accompanied by pictures of mostly white guys dying I picked it up because 1 I had a WWII phase, 2 I ve never seen a graphic novel version of it, 3 I grew up in the US and was interested in the Canadian perspective However, I m sure there are engaging ways to tell it This could be a useful book if teens needed a graphic novel version of their history books but as we know, teachers prefer to use the text wh [...]


    8. An interesting tale of the Canadians heavy involvement in the battles of the Second World War and the liberation of the Netherlands Looks at different aspects of the Canadian Army through use of different chapters, and highlights important, sometimes lesser known, battles in which the Canadians fought A great story for those who want to learn about Canadian involvement in the war, the military, as well as the ships, vehicles, and aircraft used in Europe, Hong Kong, and at home.


    9. This is a good overview of the Canadian contribution to the Second World War It does a good job with both the fight against the Germans and the Japanese It does need to be backed with a larger work on the Second World War as it is arranged thematically This reader was not all that keen on the CGI style illustration but that is a preference the art is clear enough for the graphic aspect of this graphic history to work.


    10. This was not a very captivating read but I did get of a sense of Canada s role in ww2 which is what i was looking for The one volume books on war that I have read are light on Canada s role and I wanted a better treatment of the subject This book is good for that but I must admit that I found it quite dry and boring.


    11. A neat overview of WW2 all from the Canadian perspective I had never studied the war from that exact perspective before Definitely some blood but what can you expect with a war book I think that a lot of people will enjoy this way of studying history.


    12. a decent summary of Canada s role in the Second World War, including numerous spotlights on Canada s Victoria Cross recipients if you re a war buff, you won t uncover anything new here rather i would recommended this for the young adult reader as such, it presents a good overview.


    13. I am not the typical graphic novel fan, but I did enjoy this one However, I combined my need to read a graphic novel with one of my favorite genres Military History and came away with a winner A very good rendition of Canadian Military History.


    14. The graphic novel makes Canada s history during World War II accessible to youth I enjoyed the read must be Canadian, eh Recommended to those interested in Canada, history and or graphic novels.


    15. What a sumptuous piece of work Not only is it the most incredible, one stop shop for Canadian WW2 history you are likely to find, it s also an incredibly poignant, visceral piece of artistic brilliance It s such a beautiful creation I m almost astonished that it actually exists.



    16. Given the subject matter, I wanted to like this book a whole lot than I actually did But I learned something, and the art was very competent for the nature of the work Also, Canadians.
