The reviews for DIEPPE: Canada’s Darkest Day of World War II have been perhaps the best I’ve ever received, Susan Perren’s use of the “s” word (“superb”) three times in her Globe & Mail review (see below) was a particular thrill. But other reviewers have also been laudatory, and (bless ‘em) they’ve written encomiums that can be neatly quoted – ever so useful for promotion.
“Brewster’s attention to detail and his ability to present the material in a student-friendly manner, complete with compelling illustrations and facts that have been overlooked or hidden for decades provides for a memorable, informative and essential point of reference for all Canadians…” —London Free Press, Aug.15, ’09
“As in his earlier books, Hugh Brewster gives a clear, thoughtful and moving account of this tragic time in Canadian military history.” —Deakin Newsletter, Summer ’09
“Brewster is a master craftsman of history, his research impeccable and deep, his storytelling as fine as any bestseller of fiction. Kids should learn history and learn it’s not boring. Brewster’s books will do that.” —Halifax Chroncile-Herald, July 26, ’09
