September 2008

“Each book is a labour of love for Zuehlke… Terrible Victory, which features a fragmented battle over numerous areas, was a challenge for him to piece together in a linear fashion. ...Zuehlke is fascinated by the generation who went through the Second World War and lived to shape our nation as it is today. …[He thinks] in order to understand them you have to understand the experience that they went through.”

“Zuehlke has honed his techniques over time – heave interviewing of veterans and a good, thorough scouring of the archival sources and secondary literature. The result, as in his Terrible Victory… is a very good study of the 2nd Canadian Corps’ hard-fought battles in the mud and on the polders of the approaches to Antwerp. …Zuehlke has a good eye for the telling detail.”

“Zuehlke brings readers into the terrifying experience of Canadian soldiers slogging through the mud and wet of the Dutch polders, while providing the strategic context and importance of the battle before them. …Terrible Victory continues Zuehlke’s impressive run of bringing to light Canada’s most important contributions of the Second World War.”
