A War of Patrols is a comprehensive account of the Canadian campaign in Korea. It provides the first detailed study of the training, leadership, operations, and tactics of the brigade under each of its three wartime commanders, and of its relationship with American and Commonwealth allies. An impeccably researched analytical history, the book examines the often uneven performance of the various Canadian units and argues that the soldiers of the "Special Force" initially sent to Korea were more thorough and professional in their operations than were the army's regular battalions that eventually replaced them at the front.
The Korean War has often been characterized as Canada's "forgotten" war. The revisionist interpretations in A War of Patrols will be of tremendous significance to both academic and military professionals. All readers will be intrigued by this fresh look at an important part of Canada's military past.
