Well researched and well written, this detailed study describes how the Canadian Corps in the Great War reacted to gas warfare and learned both how to cope with it and how to use it. What makes Cook's book so interesting is his emphasis on the psychological threat posed by gas warfare. A fine study. All levels. -- J. Granatstein * Choice *
Tim Cook takes his readers on a fascinating, horrific, and ultimately important journey through the terrifying gas warfare experiences of the Canadian Corps during the First World War. In an exhaustively researched, well-written work offering a large number of firsthand accounts, Cook powerfully conveys the meaning of gas warfare to a Canadian soldiery at first wholly unprepared for its unsheathing ... Cook's first-rate book ably fills a gap in the literature on Canada's participation in the First World War and makes a major contribution to our understanding of this underexplored aspect of Canadian military history. -- Serge M. Durflinger * CBRA 4037 *
