Stormin Norman: Born to Battle
The compelling story of one of Canada's unsung World War II heroes as recounted by his own proud son
by David N. Robson


A True-Life Story about a Canadian World War II Veteran, Artillery Soldier and hero who experienced MORE! MORE abuse by growing up in a household filled with PTSD, from a Stepfather who was a poisonous gas scarred World War I Veteran, MORE homelessness from running away from home at the tender age of 13 to escape the unpredictable parental abuse, MORE active duty than General George S. Patton, an American icon and 5 Star General, after Stormin Norman enlisted at the age of 16 and joined the infamous North Nova Scotia Highlanders aka North Novas. Stormin Norman fought in 4 Major Battles against the Germans that forever changed the outcome of WWII and the face of history. He was seriously injured twice fighting the Nazis. Unbelievably, and against the discharging doctor’s advice, upon leaving the hospital he re-enlisted to fight against the Japanese in the Jungles of Burma. Here is Stormin Norman’s inspiring inside story as told by his own proud Canadian son David N. Robson.

David N. Robson is a former professional athlete, business man and married Father of 5 adult children. In order of age, oldest to youngest, they are Maddi, Sarah, Amanda, Jeff and Bill. He and his lovely retired wife Lorraine reside in Ancaster, Ontario. After an unsuccessful stint with the NHL's Los Angeles Kings, Mr. Robson became one of the first recipients of the Ontario Hockey League's Scholarship Program Award in 1981. With the award in hand, he attended Wilfrid Laurier University where he received an Honours Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with a Co-Op Option. He worked in the computer industry with IBM Canada, Unisys Canada and MFP Ltd. until 2002 when Mr. Robson started Robson Technologies Ltd. He is currently both founder and President. Although not an authority on the subject of World War II, PTSD or child abuse, Mr. Robson has viewed the Stormin Norman story first hand. Whether as a child of a decorated PTSD filled veteran who was forced to listen to nightly intoxicated war stories; to a regular unappreciative and ungrateful Canadian civilian; to an immensely proud war heroes son.
