Zombie Army

The Canadian Army and Conscription in the Second World War

Book - 2016
Rate this:

Zombie Army tells the story of Canada's Second World War military conscripts - reluctant soldiers pejoratively referred to as "zombies" for their perceived similarity to the mindless movie monsters of the 1930s. In the first full-length book on the subject in almost forty years, Byers combines underused and newly discovered records to argue that although conscripts were only liable for home defence, they soon became a steady source of recruits from which the army found volunteers to serve overseas. He also challenges the traditional nationalist-dominated impression that Quebec participated only grudgingly in the war.
