about

This is the untold story about the Canadian Railway Troops who built, maintained and operated the standard gauge and light railways, the supply routes to the front lines during The Great War — World War I.

David Guay discusses the evolution and management of this complex infrastructure in the context of German, French and British railway development and military strategy. He also emphasizes the enormity of the railway work done by the Canadians: regimental histories, organizational charts, operating procedures, decorations, rosters of locomotives and rolling stock, as well as tips on modelling and collecting railway and military memorabilia.

Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of archival photographs throughout.

David Guay is professor emeritus in experimental and clinical pharmacology at the University of Minnesota. He is also a leading historian of Canadian railway history.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Eh What a shame that such an important topic, (my mothers uncle served in the original 500 of the CORC), is so poorly presented.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great book, great author but poor publisher! Despite enjoying this book and its authors quality efforts, this book is being sold as hardcover online with publisher is only shipping softcover. Retailer confirmed no hardcovers are actually printed by publisher. Very disappointed after ordering online a hardcover, but receiving only softcover, as I was looking forward to a quality hardcover which the authors good work deserves!
