Colonel G.W.L. Nicholsons Canadian Expedi- tionary Force 19141919 was rst published by the Department of National Defence in 1962 as the ofcial history of the Canadian Armys in- volvement in the First World War. Immediately after the war ended Colonel A. Fortescue Duguid made a rst attempt to write an ofcial history of the war but the ill-fated project produced only the rst of an anticipated eight volumes. Decades later G.W.L. Nicholson already the author of an ofcial history of the Second World War was commissioned to write a new ofcial history of the First. Illustrated with numerous photographs and full-colour maps Nicholsons text offers an authoritative account of the war effort while also discussing politics on the home front including debates around conscription in 1917. With a new critical introduction by Mark Humphries that traces the development of Nicholsons text and analyzes its legacy Canadian Expeditionary Force 19141919 is an essential resource for both professional historians and military history enthusiasts. Colonel G.W.L. Nicholson 19201980 served with the Prince Albert Volunteers and worked for the Historical Section of the Canadian military with appointments in London and Ottawa from 1943 until his retirement in 1961. He is the au- thor of Marlborough and the War of the Spanish Succession The Canadians in Italy 19431945 and The Fighting Newfoundlander. Mark Humphries is associate professor of history and Dunkley Chair in War and the Canadian Experience at Wilfrid Laurier University. 2 M Q U P F A L L 2 0 1 5 C A N A D I A N H I S T O R Y M I L I TA R Y H I S T O R Y n e w e d i t i o n Canadian Expeditionary Force 19141919 Ofcial History of the Canadian Army in the First World War g.w.l. nicholson With a new introduction by Mark Humphries An authoritative and extensively illustrated account of how the Canadian Army experienced the Great War.
