The Canadian Ross Rifle procurement saga in World War I, with details of
the development and ammunition. Weapons procurement has always been a most
controversial aspect of Canadian defence policy. Therefore, it is quite telling
to look back on the Ross Rifle controversy - a rifle without a doubt the most
hated, debated and rated weapon of its day. Everyone had an opinion about it.
This book takes a look at the Ross Rifle story which has only appeared as an
Appendix (No 111) to the 1938 Official History of the Canadian Expeditionary
Force. It is a new treatment of the Ross history written between the wars by the
Army's Official Historian. The author had official access to all of the players
in the infamous rifle controversy.
