The first sentence: "Specialist units and formations concerned with irregular warfare, as a distinctive type of military unit, first emerged during the Second World War." ignores the fact that the term Commando entered the British Military lexicon following the use of Irregular Units and Formations by the Boers in the Boer War, a style of fighting that was in turn adopted by the Imperial Forces. This led to the creation of such units as the Bushveldt Carbineers, those of Breaker Morant fame (or Infamy!)

Default Links galore!

Those are some very interesting titles.

Without having opened each one, I see a slice of scholarship where an interested researcher and a supportive thesis advisor let nature run its course. The Canadian chemical weapons story is one of those periods which tend to be uncomfortable and whitewashed out of sight. Like Canada's detention camps and declarations of undesirable elements in society, the notion of Total War being something done 'over there' is easier to explain (or not).
