ENGLISH, Allan D. The Cream of the Crop : Canadian Aircrew, 1939-1945. Montreal & Kingston : McGill-Queen's University Press, (1998). First Edition. Pp. (6),[vii]-xiii,(9, section of b&w photos), [1]-239,(3). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

Allan Douglas English (b. November 8, 1949, in Winnipeg, Manitoba) was an air navigator in the Canadian Forces from 1971 to 1991.

A volume on the Canadian airmen that fought overseas during the First and Second World War, and the psychological toll that the operations and hardships which they faced took on Canada's aviators.

"In this insightful critique of the effectiveness of the Royal Canadian Air Force in preparing its aircrew for war, Allan English describes the development of a uniquely Canadian selection system that attempted to match the aptitudes of aircrew candidates to the duties they would perform and the evolution of the RCAF's training program from a haphazard system with enormous attrition to one that became the model for many modern systems. He also traces the development of aviation psychology and the treatment of psychological casualties of air combat. English pays particular attention to the controversy over diagnosing aviators as suffering from 'lack of moral fibre' and the RCAF's response, as well as the effect of morale and leadership on the psychological well-being of, and casualty rates among, Royal Air Force and RCAF bomber squadrons.

In exploring the human dimension of air warfare, an issue that has been widely overlooked in military literature, English demonstrates that personnel considerations have at least as much influence on the effectiveness of air forces as material and technological factors." - from the jacket.

"An early nineteenth-century journal of an astonishing voyage from Montreal to the Columbia River via Cape Horn, including descriptions of the court of King Tamehamema of Hawaii and the founding of Fort Astoria." front of dj.

"By 1811 the American fur trade, under the aegis of John Jacob Astor, had burgeoned into a tremendous enterprise. One of Astor's associates was Montreal-born Canadian, Gabriel Franchère.

Franchère kept a diary of one of the most extraordinary voyages ever experienced. Leaving Montreal in 1811, he arrived in New York, where he and a group of other young Americans and Canadian shipped out on the American vessel Tonquin , bound for the Pacific Northwest. The thrilling danger-packed voyage around Cape Horn to the rugged Pacific Coast included a stop-over in Hawaii, where the voyagers were royally entertained at the court of King Tamehamema.

Franchère provides us with colorful descriptions of the founding of Fort Astoria at the mouth of the Columbia River and its subsequent surrender to the British forces during the War of 1812.

The book ends with an account of the overland return to Montreal - a journey as intrepid and dramatic as the sea voyage out." - from dj flaps.
