About this title


This text examines the myriad ways in which Canadians remembered and celebrated their participation in the Great War. Collectively these memories offered explanations and consolations to Canadians and instilled in them the hope that a new sense of national identity could be born out of war.


Jonathan Vance ... is to be congratulated on his fine achievement in spelling out how Canadians met this collective need to commemorate their war-time participation, suffering and death ... His success in pulling together the previous Canadian writings and sources, including his splendid use of illustrations ... is altogether admirable, excellently researched, finely published. (John S. Conway The Vancouver Sun)

One attractive feature of this book is the illustrations, more than 80 of them, accompanied by excellent captions. (Paul Fussell The Globe and Mail)
