BRUTINEL: THE EXTRAORDINARY STORY OF A FRENCH CITIZEN BRIGADIER-GENERAL IN THE CANADIAN ARMY

Raymond Brutinel was born into an old family from Alet-lesbains, in South-East of France. At the age of 16 he abandoned his studies to travel around the world on some of the last sailing ships. After his military service in Tarbes in the South-West of France, he left with his wife and son and settled in Edmonton Alberta, in 1905. He quickly prospered pursuing numerous activities in journalism, prspecting and finance. His keen interest in military strategy, coupled with his passion for history inspired him to create, in Canada, at the outset of the WWI, the first autonomous motorized machine gun unit.
