This review essay reviews three recent books on Canadian military history: Mark Celinscak's Distance from the Belsen Heap, Daniel Byers's Zombie Army, and Tim Cook's Fight to the Finish. It examines their importance to the new and challenging directions that scholarship on Canada's Second World War is taking. Celinscak and Byers provide expert engagement with little-discussed and uncomfortable aspects of Canada's war, while Cook's sweeping history provides a framework for them that will be the new standard work on the subject.
