Canadian Forces Headquarters (CFHQ) Reports, 1965-1970
When Col C.P. Stacey returned to Ottawa to organize the Directorate of History out of the three former separate Service historical sections, he introduced the practice of writing historical narratives of current operations or on topics of contemporary interest.
In form, the CFHQ reports, compiled from 1965-1980, are the successors of the Canadian Military Headquarters (CMHQ) Reports and the Army Headquarters (AHQ) Reports; in content, they deal with peacekeeping, naval aspects of the Second World War, and the organization and structure of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Department of National Defence from colonial times.
The CFHQ Reports below have been declassified and are being made available electronically over time. All hard copies are available at the Directorate of History and Heritage (DHH). Historical documents in their own right, these reports are available only in English.
The following historical documents are from the period prior to 1969 and/or are presented in their original language only, with permission from Director Official Languages (DOL).
