Present Research Interests:
I am actively involved with the Laurier Centre for Military and Strategic Disarmament Studies (LCMSDS) and in its publications program. In addition to editing the journal Canadian Military History, I am editing Operational Research in 21 Army Group and writing a study of the Canadian soldiers' experience of the battles on Verrieres Ridge July-August 1944. My long-term interest in the military effectiveness of the Allied armies in North West Europe, which led to studies of battle exhaustion and brigade level operations, will be developed in a new book on 21 Army Group. This study will incorporate work on tactical air power which has been a subject of interest for a number of years. My interest in military psychiatry, including the long term effects of exposure to combat-related stress, will continue leading to the publication of articles and the presentation of papers.
