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

Oka : a convergence of cultures and the Canadian Forces by Timothy C Winegard( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1990 Oka Crisis is considered a defining moment in Native-Canadian relations. Contrary to popular belief, it was not an isolated event but rather the 300-year long convergence of two distinct cultures that culminated in a violent clash in the microcosm of Oka and included the domestic deployment of the Canadian Forces, 4,500 strong."
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

In the first chapter, we find that shell shock challenged accepted medical knowledge and military authority. The practices that gained prominence were those that were the least problematic for doctors, the military, and governments. As the war progressed it became apparent that large numbers of individuals who had not been exposed to battle were also exhibiting the symptoms of 'war neurosis'. This lent credence to the view that such anxiety disorders were the result of inherited traits or developmental problems perhaps exacerbated by the stress of war, but really due to some predisposing cause

Special operations forces : a national capability( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In order to expand the dialogue of Canadian Special Operations Forces and their unique range of capabilities with their partners within the defence community, the media and the Canadian public, a symposium was held at the Royal Military College of Canada in 2010. This volume represents an amalgam of the presentations and ideas that were put forward by scholars and military practitioners in order to both educate, as well as create, discourse on the subject of SOF. Beginning with the Canadian SOF legacy and how it has evolved to meet the nation's needs, it moves on to look at crucial components of force develpment and ways in which SOF help to shape the area of operations. It explores important issues such as the role of SOF as an economy of effort/economy of force option in the contemporary operating environment as well as the budding media-SOF relationship
The future security environment, 2013-2040( )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this document is to provide a pragmatic assessment out to 2040 of trends significant to security and defense in order to inform Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Force Development (FD). For many decades, three enduring roles have been assigned to the CAF to support the Government’s broader national security and foreign policy objectives: defend Canada by operating across the length and breadth of Canada as necessary; be a strong and reliable partner in the defense of North America; and, contribute to international peace and security by making meaningful contributions to expeditionary operations. These roles imply that the CAF must be able to undertake operations ranging from the provision of humanitarian assistance to the employment of combat capabilities against any adversaries that may seek to threaten Canada’s national interests. Thus, the preparations required to fulfill these tasks assigned by the Government of Canada are bound to be challenging. This document is meant to help address that challenge by identifying and analyzing trends relevant to defense and security
Adaptive leadership in the military context : international perspectives( )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book covers adaptive leadership from the level of the individual leader to the doctrinal level. The complexity of adaptive leadership is evident from the competencies necessary to be an effective adaptive leader. Topics discussed in this volume include systems thinking, critical thinking and ethical decision making. At the doctrinal level, it is interesting to note that Canada, Indonesia, New Zealand, and South Africa are all in the process of renewing their leadership doctrine to reflect the changes required in today's military leadership. Adaptive leadership is a key concept in all of these nation's leadership development programs
