Introduction

The material included in this collection comprise a small sampling of books from the Chicksands Collection of Military History which is

housed at the University of Calgary's Library and Archives at The Military Museums (TMM).  The collection, obtained from the British Ministry

of Defence, is one of the largest special collections of military-related texts in a Canadian academic library.  Coverage is international in

scope and provides insight into the development of military traditions and practices of modern warfare.  The collection was obtained late in

2010 and, by summer of 2013, close to half of the nearly 50,000 volumes have been added to the library catalogue which can be accessed

at http://library.ucalgary.ca
