Winner of the 2016 Ottawa Book Award The magisterial second volume of Tim Cook's definitive account of Canadians fighting in the Second World War.      Historian Tim Cook displays his trademark storytelling ability in the second volume of his masterful account of Canadians in World War II. Cook combines an extraordinary grasp of military strategy with a deep empathy for the soldiers on the ground, at sea and in the air. Whether it's a minute-by-minute account of a gruelling artillery battle, vicious infighting among generals, the scene inside a medical unit, or the small details of a soldier's daily life, Cook creates a compelling narrative. He recounts in mesmerizing detail how the Canadian forces figured in the Allied bombing of Germany, the D-Day landing at Juno beach, the taking of Caen, and the drive south. Featuring dozens of black-and-white photographs and moving excerpts from letters and diaries of servicemen, Fight to the Finish is a memorable account of Canadians who fought abroad and of the home front that was changed forever.… (mer)

This volume takes up where Volume 1 entitled The Necessary War stopped. As with Volume 1, Cook gives the background on the strategy, the political situation, the problems faced by soldiers and commanders on both sides of the lines. The focus is on the Canadian contribution to the Allied cause with many quotes from soldiers diaries, memoirs and interviews.

Cook is an historian at the Canadian War Museum who writes history in a popular style aimed at the non academic reader yet his research is immense. He does not shy away from examining the many controversies that occurred during the War in the way Canadian soldiers and commanders were viewed by their allies. The British were especially critical of Canadian efforts in Normandy while ignoring that the Canadians faced some of the best German troops facing the Allied forces on D-Day. The Americans felt the Canadians took too long to defeat German troops in Italy.

An excellent history of Canada's contribution to defeating Nazi Germany. ( )
