"Only two great groups of animals, men and ants, indulge in highly organized warfare."(Charles H. Maskins - Men ‘Zines) Canadian involvement in World War Two was an integral part of winning. Most major battles that were fought had many Canadian troops, seamen, or pilots. Some of the most awe inspiring and disheartening of these battles were the Battle of the Atlantic, Battle of Britain, Dieppe and Normandy. These battles baptized us in fire and created a nation that all gave the deepest respect to. For these reasons, these battles are worth examining much more closely to understand their impact on the war.
