The Great War (1914-1918) inspired courageous heroes and established a proud Canadian nationalism, but it was a devastating event that killed or maimed almost half of Canada’s brave soldiers in battles such as Ypres, the Somme, Vimy Ridge, and the final 100 days.
Young readers will discover Canada’s part in the first great worldwide conflict. They will learn about life in the trenches, the first tanks, u-boats and convoys, aces and dog fights, machine guns and cavalry charges, gas warfare, as well as the drastic changes in women’s roles.
