In the mid-1990s The Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies published a trio of books covering Canadian battles in the Second World War. In conjunction with the Canadian Battlefields Foundation, they have reissued the books--reorganized in four volumes (so as to include material on First World War battlefields as well). The aim is to provide a travelers guide for those who wish to follow a "Maple Leaf trail" in Europe. Abundant photos and maps support thorough narratives.

Blackwell Publishing
The battlefields of Dieppe and the Channel Ports have played an important role in the collective memory and imagination of generations of Canadians. From the great Vimy Pilgrimage of 1936 to the D-Day and VE Day anniversaries of recent times, Canadians have been drawn to the memorials and place names which are a vital part of our history.

This guide to the Second World War battlefields of Northern France is intended to encourage Canadians to set out on their own journey to those places û not just the memorials and museums, but the villages and fields where young Canadians fought with such bravery to liberate Northwest Europe from the yoke of Nazi tyranny.
