Historical Papers at the Canadian Forces Leadership Institute

The Canadian Forces Leadership Institute, part of the Canadian Defence Academy of the Department of National Defence, was created in 2001 "as the Centre of Excellence for leadership research and concept development in the CF. The purpose of the CFLI is to disseminate core concepts of leadership and the Profession of Arms to the CF." Among its many activities, the CFLI has issued many Research Papers, some of which are specific to subjects of Canadian military history, including:
