Published by the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies This volume presents the original text of a groundbreaking study on professional education for the Canadian officer corps. The Report of the Officer Development Board, from 1969, is commonly called the Rowley Report after its primary author, Maj. Gen.
