Tim Cook’s important WWII history. A different perspective: how Canadians have framed, then, reframed this experience over the decades. How such things as Canada’s losses at Hong Kong, Dieppe, etc., and such homefront stories as the Japanese in Canada became focal points at the expense of the nation’s renowned victories in the Battle of the Atlantic, Bomber Command, D-Day, etc. Tim Cook puts such matters into realistic perspective. Such chapter heads as “Why We Fought”, “Failing to Tell Our Story”, “Apology Campaigns” & “Reclaiming History” are enticing.
