More than fifty years later, their memories of these battles remain among themost vivid of their lives. Robert Bracken has been collecting material for this series for the past fifteen years, from military archives, from perso nal logbooks, scrapbooks and photo albums, and from in-depth interviews with the men who were there. These are the first-person accounts of Canadians who saw wartime action first-hand.
