Tarnished Brass: Crime and Corruption in the Canadian Military

10.00 32.95

By Scott Taylor and Brian Nolan

In this provocative and unsettling best-selling book released in 1996, former soldier and Esprit de Corps publisher Scott Taylor and veteran reporter and author Brian Nolan blow the lid off crime and corruption in the Canadian military's high command, and attempt to restore some glory to this tarnished institution.

The brutal 1993 murder of 16-year-old Shidane Arone by Canadian peacekeepers in Somalis was not an isolated incident; it was symptomatic of a greater malaise that pervaded the armed forces at that time. From cover-ups and the destruction of evidence to fraud and other abuses of power, corruption was rampant in Canada's military during that era.

Taylor and Nolan uncovered evidence of fraudulent misuse of power that was sapping the morale of the lower ranks, many of whom relied on government assistance and food banks to survive in the 1990s, and created an atmosphere of distrust and dishonesty.
