Canada had one over-arching objective: to leave Afghanistan to Afghans in a country that is better governed, more peaceful and more secure.

The wonderful men and women you will meet within these pages worked tirelessly to make this happen. This is their story. The stories and images are arranged in a chronology that follows Canada’s engagement in Afghanistan. As such it will be a welcome and positive legacy for the CF members who served, for the families and friends of the fallen, for schools, and for the Canadian public.

The book is a large, hard cover title of 272 pages, organized in chapters by year and operation, to share with Canadians the stories, reflections and images produced by CF members and CF agencies such as Army News and Combat Camera.

Contributions from journalists who embedded with the mission will also be incorporated. Remember, net proceeds from book sales will go to the Edmonton Military Family Resources Centre, to be shared with military support services such as the Boomers Legacy Foundation, the Military Families Fund, the Soldier On Fund and Operation Dignity St Anne de Bellevue Veterans Hospital Foundation.
