Dieppe, Ortona, Normandy, the Scheldt—more than sixty years after they were fought, these World War II battles remain indelibly engraved in Canadian memory. They are remembered as part of “the good fight,” a war in which Canadians took a stand for all humanity. Using a wealth of first-person accounts and rarely seen illustrations, one of Canada’s most respected historians tells the story of how the nation became involved in World War II, how it fought the war and how it emerged as a united, prosperous nation and a respected “middle power” on the world stage.

Commemorating the 60th anniversary of VE Day, The Last Good War tells these stories in a way that will appeal to readers young and old. It is superbly illustrated with fresh material including 164 black and white and more than 50 full-colour photographs and maps gathered primarily from the collections of the Canadian War Museum.
