Colonel Bernd Horn's "The Canadian Way of War"

Dundurn Press has published a series of essays edited by Colonel Bernd Horn entitled The Canadian Way of War: Serving the National Interest which I was able to purchase a copy of yesterday. This is an interesting collection of articles from Canadian military historians, mostly members of the Canadian Forces and/or employed by the Department of National Defence. The essays include: Bernd Horn's "La Petite Guerre: A Strategy of Survival"; John R. Grodzinski's "'They Really Conducted Themselves Remarkably Well': Canadian Soldiers and the Great War, 1783 to 1815" and his "A Modicum of Professionalism: The Canadian Militia in the Nineteenth Century"; Bernd Horn and Ronald G. Haycock's "The Primacy of National Command: Boer War Lesson Learned"; Andrew Godefroy's "Canadian Military Effectiveness in the First World War"; Stephen J. Harris's "A Canadian Way of War: 1919 to 1939"; Douglas Delaney's "When Harry Met Monty: Canadian National Politics and the Crerar-Montgomery Relationship"; Ronald G. Haycock and Michael Hennesy's "The Road from Innocence: Canada and the Cold War, 1945 to 1963"; Howard G. Coombs's (with Richard Goette) "Supporting the Pax Americana: Canada's Military and the Cold War"; Sean Maloney's "In the Service of Forward Security: Peacekeeping, Stabilization, and the Canadian War of War"; Andrew B. Godefroy's "The Intangible Defence: Canada's Militarization and Weaponization of Space"; and Scot Robertson's "Years of Innocence and Drift: The Canadian Way of War in the Post-Cold War Era".
