FOR VICTORY, by W.A. Gregg
by Col. Gary H. Rice (ret.)
The 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion was Canadaís first paratroop unit, remaining on the nationís wartime order of battle for a scant 1187 days. Colonel Riceís concise and unpretentious biography of its first Regimental Sergeant Major, Wendell James (Knobby) Clark, creates a vivid portrait of the life of the unitís top non commissioned officer, as he awaits his first combat jump, and his death in action on D-Day, June 6, 1944. This is an insightful account of how this professional soldier contributed to the growth and ultimate battlefield successes of one of Canadaís most courageous wartime battalions. The text includes several wartime photos of RSM Clark, five maps of his battalionís drop zone, references and an index.
