This cover honours Lรฉo Major โ€œThe one-eyed ghostโ€, a Canadian who exemplified bravery on the battlefront.

In April 1945, while scouting the German-occupied Dutch town of Zwolle, Private Leo Major singlehandedly tricked the enemy into thinking they were under a full attack, capturing dozens of prisoners and forcing the Germans to retreat, which earned him the Distinguished Conduct Medal and the lasting gratitude of the people of Zwolle.
