Sobre o livro
The untold story of how Canadian Cyclists came into their own during the Hundred Days campaign of the Great War.
Cyclist troops in Canadas armed forces spent most of the First World War digging trenches, patrolling roads, and delivering dispatches. But during the Hundred Days campaign at the end of the Great War, Canadas Cyclist troops came into their own.
At Amiens, Cambrai, and especially the Pursuit from the Sensée, the Cyclists made pioneering contributions to the development of the Canadian Corpss combined arms strategy and mobile warfare doctrine, all the while exhibiting the consummate professionalism the Corps became renowned for.
