Mark Zuehlke's latest and upcoming military history publications

Well, military historian Mark Zuehlke is certainly keeping busy on the Canadian military history front. His website (www.zuehlke.ca) is reporting the publication of three books - one this year and two in 2008:

Coming this November from Douglas & McIntyre is Terrible Victory: First Canadian Army in the Scheldt Campaign - September 13-November 6, 1944. Zuehlke writes that the book draws on personal diaries, military records, and interviews with veterans (in other words, the same style as his previous Canadian military history publications) and, in his words, "dramatically retells this battle that required all the Canadians' courage, endurance, sacrifice, and skill to turn potential tragedy into triumph."

Scheduled for publication in the Fall of 2008, also published by Douglas & McIntyre, is Husky: Canada and the Sicily Campaign - July-August, 1944 [sic, 1943].

Also scheduled for publication around the same time, this book to be published by John Wiley & Sons, Canada, is Brave Battalion: 16th Canadian Battalion (Canadian Scottish) in World War I.

Hello Zuehlke fans,

I just wanted to point out that there is a mistake in the title of the upcoming Zuehlke book mentioned. The actual title is "Sicily", not "Husky". The book will be published in the Fall of 2008. More information will be available on the Douglas & McIntyre website in the spring.


Happy reading!
