A haunting, moving scrapbook of the Great War from a Canadian point of view. Each spread covers a topic such as trench warfare, daily life, or patriotism. The book is filled with black-and-white and color period photographs, pages from training manuals, ads, postcards, cartoons, paintings, propaganda, etc. Two sections offer personal information on soldiers-one who returned to Canada a broken man and one who didn’t make it home. While there are better sources for report writers, this book will invite serious students and browsers alike; the horrors of the war are fully realized here. A compelling portfolio. For grades 4 to 7.
