From the Battle of Ypres to the Battle of Vimy Ridge, the Canadian Expeditionary Force played a key role in Allied victory during World War I. Blending biography and military history, Portraits of Battle highlights the experiences of Canadians who participated in the Great War. The diversity revealed by these touching portraits of soldiers, civilians, deserters, nurses, and Indigenous people offers a fresh, nuanced perspective on the legacy of World War I in Canadian memory.
 
Review Quotes
James Wood, Okanagan College
Richly detailed, Portraits of Battle is devoted to the recognition of the Canadians who fought in the Great War, their bravery and their fears, and the sacrifices made both by the soldiers and their families at home.
