Canada has produced some outstanding military leaders in every field of endeavour---in the air, on the land, and at sea. Arthur Bishop once again brings Canadian history to life. As more and more Canadians examine what's gone wrong with the military, Bishop takes a look at an inspiring selection of Canada's finest and noblest military leaders from 1812 to the present day. In Bishop's trademark colourful, narrative style, fifteen leaders are covered in detail from their personal history through their accomplishments on and off the battlefield. Journey into Canada's history as Salute! takes you into battle with such leaders as Isaac Brock, Tecumseh, Arthur Currie, Guy Simonds, John Rockingham, Wilf Curtis, and Jacques Dextraze. See how their outstanding leadership shaped Canada from the War of 1812 to the present. As Canada's Armed Forces struggle out from under the shame of hazings, Somalia, and the subsequent coverups, it is time to look at the great military leaders who led Canada to battle and glory, to learn from them, to be proud of them, to salute them.
