| The Royal Canadian Armoured Corps: An Illustrated History
By John Marteinson & Michael R. McNorgan
448 pages ISBN: 1896941176
The Royal Canadian Armoured Corps has a proud heritage, but the history of the mobile arm of the Canadian Army and its actions has never been told in one volume. This handsome illustrated book, a Millenium project, is published to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the formation of the RCAC. It includes hundreds hundreds of pictures, many of them in colour, as well as drawings of AFVs, maps of actions, and unit badges past and present.
The origins of the Corps go back to cavalry ancestors that served in the War of 1812, the Rebellions of 1837-38 and the North-West Rebellion. The First World War saw the advent of the tank and other forms of armour, and the organization expanded enormously to meet the demands of the Second World War. The major part of the book deals with the Corps in that conflict as Canadian armoured units played important roles in the defeat of the Third Reich. Finally, the Armoured Corps has been involved in most of Canada's military commitments since the war, carrying out peacekeeping duties in many parts of the world, including Kosovo.
