"The battle for British and world recognition of Canadian independence was fought on the plains of Belgium and France, bought with the blood of almost sixty thousand men and won in the end by the unparalleled achievements of the crack Canadian Corps. That these troops could go from victory to victory in a war best remembered for its bloodshed and defeats testifies to the strength of character and the tactical brilliance of the Corps Commander, Canada's greatest soldier, Sir Arthur William Currie. In this first reappraisal of Currie to appear in over thirty-five years, the author brings to life this giant of a man blessed with courage, intelligence and uncommon common sense, and reveals the true scope of his achievements not only as a solder but as a confidant of four prime ministers and as principal and vice-chancellor of McGill University which he led to its greatest prestige and renown." - from dust jacket.
