Rate this:
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 throughout.
