Overview

Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Dewar MacLeod joined the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II. He was attached to the Second Tactical Air Force, flying Mosquito aircraft in support of Allied ground forces in Europe when he was killed in action on September 29, 1944. His aircraft was shot down near a Belgian village, where he was temporarily buried.

Sixty-two years later, in July of 2006, Dewar's family learned his death may have been caused by friendly fire. In Identification: Friend or Foe, author James MacLeod, Dewar's brother, who also served with the RCAF, chronicles the journey to discover the truth about Dewar's death. Through a compilation of letters and emails, MacLeod follows the path of the investigation and the ensuing conclusions.

With photos included, Identification: Friend or Foe, captures a piece of history of WWII and provides closure to events that occurred more than sixty-eight years ago.
