The other cold war : Canada's military assistance to the developing world, 1945-1975 by Christopher R Kilford( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Christopher Kilford sets out to carefully examine how Canada became involved with the provision of military equipment, advice and training to armed forces throughout the developing world after 1945 ... impact that military assistance had in several 19th century countries and why later, in the 1960s, militaries were often viewed as the best means to encourage wider societal modernization while also preventing the spread of communism. This latter issue was a key reason why Ottawa found itself authorizing military assistance missions in the post-war period, until such efforts, at the urging of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, effectively dried up in the early 1970s."--Back cover

Believers in the battlespace : religion, ideology and war( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with the idea that the battlefield has irrevocably become the battlespace, this book explores the relation between religion and modern warfare in a variety of historical and contemporary contexts. Solely blaming religion for creating conflict does not survive contact with the evidence. Religious factors are at least equal to social, cultural and psychological ones in understanding the sources of conflict and the motivations of the combatants

The military leadership handbook by Bernd Horn( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

That there is a need to prepare individuals for command is not surprising. Commanders must accomplish their tasks, but they must do so with the minimum cost in lives and within their allocated resource allowance, which is an enormous challenge. The Military Leadership Handbook is a concise and complete manual that identifies, describes, and explains all those concepts, components, and ideas that directly relate to military leadership. The book is a comprehensive compendium that focuses on, among other subjects, cohesion, command, cultural intelligence, discipline, fear, and trust. This applied manual provides invaluable assistance to anyone who wishes to acquire a better understanding of both the theory and application of military leadership. -- Publisher's Description

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1990 Oka Crisis is considered a defining moment in Native-Canadian relations.

None but the brave : the essential contributions of RAF Bomber Command to Allied victory during the Second World War by David L Bashow( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"None but the Brave provides a fresh look at the Allied bombing campaign against the European Axis powers during the Second World War. This bombing of the Third Reich and its allies was part of Britain's overall strategy to take the offensive to the enemy. In doing so, it created a 'second front' that bled off resources from the enemy's campaign against the Soviets, and it required massive amounts of manpower and materiel to be diverted from the primary war efforts to both confront the threat and address the damage sustained. It dealt telling blows to the Axis economic and industrial infrastructure, forcing the decentralization of its war industries. Finally, it helped pave the way, through destruction of enemy air defence assets, oil resources, and transportation networks, for a successful invasion of Germany through northwest Europe. The book is also a celebration of the aircrew experience and the essential resolve and fortitude that was demonstrated by these campaigners throughout the conflict, in the face of frequently daunting perils and odds against survival."--Back cover

Combat stress in the 20th century : the Commonwealth perspective by J. T Copp( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chapter three examines the Second World War and offers an introductory narrative outlining the character and extent of CSR in various theatres of war and the controversies over causation, treatment, and expected outcomes. The issues surrounding personnel selection - the holy grail of many psychologists - are also considered. The documents reproduced in this section include reports by psychiatrists in the field offering a more detailed look at acute CSR. Chapter four begins with a brief reference to military psychiatry in the Korean War before exploring the development of treatment policies for veterans of both the Korean and Second World War. The discussion then focuses on the inclusion of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in the third edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-III) of the American Psychiatric Association. The impact of this paradigm-shifting decision on soldiers and psychiatrists is outlined as a means of introducing a number of articles and reports representative of the literature on PTSD in the Commonwealth forces."--//
Aboriginal peoples and military participation : Canadian and international perspectives( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The CF prides itself on being a national institution that reflects and promotes the values of a diverse country. This includes Canada’s Aboriginal peoples who have a proud history and tradition of military service extending from the colonial period, through the world wars, to contemporary operations. These historical and contemporary relationships are seldom explored beyond the narrow confines of our own national experience. Yet there have been, and continue to be, parallels in other indigenous populations with a strong record of military service. The chapters in this pioneering volume contribute to cross-cultural awareness by offering a critical, comparative approach to understanding Aboriginal peoples’ military service in Canada and around the world."--back cover
