Review:

Patrick Dennis has provided a well-researched study that should be an important part of any intellectual discussion on the Canadian First World War experience. -- David Borys, University of British Columbia * Canadian Military History, Vol 27, Issue 2 * Reluctant Warriors: Canadian Conscripts and the Great War, another compelling entry in the UBC Press/Canadian War Museum Studies in Canadian Military History series, is a topical and long overdue examination of a fascinating chapter of Canada's Great War experience. -- Andrew Theobald, author of The Bitter Harvest of War: New Brunswick and the Conscription Crisis of 1917 * Stand To! The Journal of the Western Front Association, No. 113 * This is a first-rate book, well written and coherent. It is very readable and I recommend it to both serious scholars of the war and to the casual historian. -- Colonel (Ret'd) Keith Maxwell, Canadian Army and Air Force & NATO International Staff * Conference of Defence Associations Institute * Patrick M. Dennis's Reluctant Warriors, another compelling entry in the UBC Press/Canadian War Museum Studies in Canadian Military History series, is a topical and long overdue examination of a fascinating chapter of Canada's Great War experience ... The work has immense emotional resonance, a welcome change from the detachment so common to operational history, buttressed by the author's personal connection to the story ... Reluctant Warriors is ... a cri de coeur that demolishes old assumptions about conscripts in combat and provides an important contribution to the larger question of what Canada gained - and lost - in the First World War. -- Andrew Theobald, author of The Bitter Harvest of War: New Brunswick and the Conscription Crisis of 1917 * Conference of Defence Associations Institute *
