Description:
It's 1942 and Hitler's armies stand astride Europe like a colossus. Germany is winning on every front. This is the story of how one of the world's first commando units, put together for the invasion of Norway, helped turn the tide in Italy.1942. When the British generals recommend an audacious plan to parachute a small elite commando unit into Norway in a bid to put Nazi Germany on the defensive, Winston Churchill is intrigued. But Britain, fighting for its life, can't spare the manpower to participate. So William Lyon MacKenzie King is contacted and asked to commit Canadian troops to the bold plan. King, determined to join Roosevelt and Churchill as an equal leader in the Allied war effort, agrees.One of the world's first commando units, the First Special Service Force, or FSSF, is assembled from hand-picked soldiers from Canadian and American regiments. Any troops sent into Norway will have to be rugged, self-sufficient, brave, and weather-hardened. Canada has such men in ample supply.The… Read more

Description:
Condition: clean copy.Content: Altruism depends on a recognition of the reality of other persons, and on the capacity to regard oneself as one individual among many. It also requires a recognition of the reality of the future, which in turn depends on the capacity to regard the present as simply a time among others. This conception of ethics involves a rejection of the view that motivation always begins with desire. Practical reason is subject to structural conditions which have a metaphysical interpretation; sone of those conditions entails the rationality of altruism. The ultimate motivational basis of a portion of ethics lies therefore in the metaphysis of the person and the exclusion of solipsism from practical reasoning.148 pages, index.

Condition: clean copy.Content: This book traces some of the ways in which border metaphors pervade Canadian consciousness. Addressing a variety of social issues - among them separatism, marginalization, multiculturalism, colonial attitudes, national policies, language and the influence of the United States - the author shows how the border, though spatial in character, is political in intent and effect. Comprising three essays, it moves from a general survey of the metaphor of the border, to a close examination of the significance of the US border in Canadian cultural history, finishing with a detailed comparison of two literary texts from the from the Pacific Northwest, each of which is shaped by the border concerns of the culture it represents.120 pages, notes, works cited.

Description:
Acclaimed historian Tim Newark tells the story of the Highlanders through the words of the soldiers themselves, from diaries, letters, and journals uncovered from archives in Scotland and around the world. At the Battle of Quebec in 1759, only a few years after their defeat at Culloden, the 78th Highlanders faced down the French guns and turned the battle. At Waterloo, High- landers memorably fought alongside the Scots Greys against Napoleon's feared Old Guard. In the Crimea, the thin red line stood firm against the charging Russian Hussars and saved the day at Balaclava.Yet this story is also one of betrayal. At Quebec, General Wolfe remarked that, despite the Highlanders' courage, it was "no great mischief if they fall." At Dunkirk in May 1940, the 51st Regiment was left to defend the SOE evacuation at St Valery; though following D-Day, the Highlanders were at the forefront of the fighting through France. It is all history, now: Over the last decade the historic regiments have been dismantled,… Read more
