Cape Bretoners in the First World War
A first hand account of the First World War.
A must read for students learning our history!
Cape Bretoners in the First World War In Their Own Words In their own words, Cape Bretoners remember the first world war. Through their conversations, letters, diaries, and photographs – from enlistment to trench life, in battle, in hospital, and in mud, mud, mud – Cape Breton soldiers and nurses open the door to a war that must never be forgotten. The passion and compassion of these voices remind us of what was dared, what was accomplished, and the gratitude we owe. One hundred years after the start of the First World War, this book is a Cape Breton gift to all of Canada. 53 voices, with over 100 photographs
