THE 1ST CANADIANS AT WAR: TWO ACCOUNTS OF THE FIRST CANADIAN DIVISION IN THE GREAT WAR

Details

From the St. Lawrence to the Yser With the 1st Canadian Brigade by Frederic C. Curry “Crumps”—the Plain Story of a Canadian Who Went by Louis Keene

When the First World War broke out the view of the British Empire by those who built it colonised it and spread its influence over the globe was that of a strong closely bonded family held together by common origin and purpose. There could be little doubt that the peoples of Australia New Zealand Canada and other countries would quickly rally to a flag they considered their own as readily as they had done in the past—particularly during the war in South Africa just a decade and a half previously. These young enthusiastic mostly citizen armies were comprised in the main of the flower of the country's young manhood. In Canada these first came from the members of the Canadian Militia though such was the demand to 'do ones bit' that this was quickly absorbed by quantities of volunteers from the community at large eager to take up arms in the service of the 'mother country.’ These two first accounts concern men of the First Canadians who join train sail to Europe and throw themselves into the early battles with the German Army in Belgium and France. They make absorbing reading as perspectives of the infantry war from the Canadian viewpoint and represent great value in this special two-in-one edition.
