By the end of the Second World War, Bert Hoffmeister had risen from Captain to Major-General and won more awards than any Canadian officer in the war. This native Vancouverite earned a reputation as a fearless commander on the battlefield – one who led from the front, one well loved by those he led. With an astute analytical eye, Delaney carefully dissects Hoffmeister’s numerous battles to reveal how he managed and how he led, how he directed and how he inspired.
