J. Victor Taboika has always had an interest in things military and this books shares with the reader his private collection to impart a glimpse of Canadians in the Great War, 1914 - 1918.  This advanced collection of Canadian Military uniforms includes several sub-collections such as an unequalled collection of Canadian formation shoulder patches.  The book begins by introducing the concept of distinct collecting areas and then combines several different collecting mediums to not only illustrate artifacts from many of the units in the Canadian Expeditionary Force, but also the lives of individuals who served their King.  The author contends that Canada's contribution to winning the Great War is often overlooked despite the fact that the Canadian Corps was the spearhead of most British offensives on the Western Front.  Along with historians, curators, modelers, collectors, re-enactors, and authors, anyone with an interest in Canada's role in the Great War will find this book engaging and visually gratifying.
