Canadian Expeditionary Force, 1914-1919: Official History of the Canadian Army in the First World War


Date: 1964



Colonel G.W.L. Nicholson's Canadian Expeditionary Force, 1914-1919 was first published by the Department of National Defence in 1962 as the official history of the Canadian Army's involvement in the First World War. Immediately after the war ended Colonel A. Fortescue Duguid made a first attempt to write an official history of the war, but the ill-fated project produced only the first of an anticipated eight volumes.

Decades later, Colonel G.W.L. Nicholson--already the author of an official history of the Second World War--was commissioned to write a new official history of the First. Lavishly illustrated with numerous photographs and full-color maps, Nicholson's 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 Nicholson's text and analyzes its legacy, Canadian Expeditionary Force, 1914-1919 is an essential resource for both professional historians and military history enthusiasts.
