Reviews

Out Standing in the Field is a remarkable — and often confounding — testament to the Canadian Forces’ enduring misogyny and to Perron’s equally stubborn loyalty towards Canada’s military.”
– Maclean’s

“[Perron] has written a revealing and moving memoir of her time fighting in the Canadian army – and fighting the Canadian army … Perron writes like a combat soldier – factual, direct and close to the ground, a style that is effective in getting her experience across without artifice.”
– The Globe and Mail

“The author is a superb storyteller: she marshalls abundant details to create cinematic scenes.”
– Quill and Quire
