Canada's once-proud armed forces face an undeniable crisis, triggered by leadership that places self-interest and personal gain before duty. In this provocative, unsettling book, former soldier Scott Taylor and veteran author Brian Nolan blow the lid off crime and corruption in the Canadian high command, pointing out necessary changes to restore glory to this tarnished instituation.
The brutal 1993 murder of sixteen-year-old Shidane Arone by Canadian peacekeepers in Somalia shocked Canada. It was not an isolated incident, buy a symptom of greater abuses pervading Canada's military. From cover-ups and the destruction of evidence to fraud and other misuses of power, corruption has been rampant in the armed forces. Taylor and Nolan uncover evidence of taxpayers-funded holidays and luxury fishing camps for top brass, cover-ups and subverted justice in cases of rape and murder, and privateering of relief supplies intended for hospitals, among other outrages.
This expose is a wake-up call for all Canadians, an essential examination of a crisis that threatens the very core of Canada's military.
