Editorial Reviews

A rare delight to read a book in which a complicated story is made to appear simple ... highly recommended.

Canadian Defence Quarterly

A "must read" for serious students of Canada-United States relations in general, and defence specialists in particular, and an enticing forerunner for the author's next instalment of this story.

International Journal

An important contribution to explaining the origins of Canada's involvement in joint air defence with the USA ... Jockel's research is all the more valuable because he has drawn upon United States sources as well as Canadian archives.
