Are you a WWII historian or fan? Do you know who "HOBO" is? What did the 79th British division do? What is the only Canadian Regiment that fought under Percy Hobart?"The Canadian Kangaroos...The Unknown Regiment" is the story of 750 Canadian Soldiers who served in a regiment that very few have ever heard of. The Regiment was "born" in France following D-Day in 1944. It fought in France , Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands until May 8,1945 and was disbanded on June 20,1945 in Enschede , The Netherlands.It is a story of Lieutenant Guy Simonds, a group of RCEME and a poorly designed and built Canadian tank called the RAM II. The development of the 1st fully armoured, fully tracked armoured personnel carrier unfolds in the book.Five interviews with Troopers who served in the Kangaroo Tanks is included and the battles fought are described. Four pages of Canadian Kangaroo maps are included along with many images of the tanks, men and their battles.If you are a military enthusiast or a World War II historian...this book is for you. In the ten years of research and writing I only met a dozen or so people who knew anything about this topic, the regiment or the men who served in it.PS This is NOT an Australian Regiment! You will have to read the book to find out why they are called Kangaroos.I will ship anywhere in the world and will combine multiple copy purchases. Each book is brand new.If you wish to have the book dedicated please state EXACTLY what you wish written in the inside cover. Send an email re this.Thank-you for your interest in this VERY UNIQUE book!Dave
