The cancellation of the CF-105 Arrow in 1959 holds such a grip on the Canadian imagination that earlier developments in defence procurement remain obscure. Randall Wakelam corrects this oversight ii½ and offers fresh insight on the AVRO saga and contemporary procurement issues ii½ by revealing how cabinet ministers, chiefs of staff, and air marshals negotiated competing pressures to arm the air force, please allies, and save money during a decade when Canada's air force was growing by leaps and bounds. The result was the CF-100 Canuck and the F-86 Sabre, Canada's front-line defensive aircraft in the coldest years of the Cold War.... 38; defence policy review, 63-65, 69-71, 74, 79; P-86 and Mutual Aid, 131; F- 86 sale to Great Britain, 89-91; jet engine ... 82-87, 89-91; postwar RCAF organization, 24- 26, 49-50; purchase of North Star transport, 26; Vampire purchase, 55.
