Zombie Army tells the story of Canada's Second World War military conscripts – reluctant soldiers pejoratively referred to as "zombies" for their perceived similarity to the mindless movie monsters of the 1930s. In the first full-length book on the subject in almost forty years, Byers combines previously underused and newly discovered records to argue that although conscripts were only liable for home defence, they soon became a source from which the active army recruited overseas fighters. He also challenges the traditional nationalist-dominated impression that Quebec was only a grudging participant in the war.
