      Canadian major general who, as one of the Allies' youngest generals during World War II, led the 4th Canadian Armoured Division in Normandy in 1944; although criticized for his division's inability to close the escape route of the defeated German armies near Falaise, France, he later earned high marks in the campaign to liberate northwestern Europe and was on hand to accept the German surrender of The Netherlands (b. Sept. 19, 1910, Canton, China—d. June 15, 1999, Victoria, B.C.).
