Editorial Reviews

Embattled Nation is a timely re-examination of the hard-fought and bitter election campaign that shaped modern Canada by two exceptional historians, who have spent their careers immersed in the Laurier-Borden era. Presented in breezy and accessible prose, their frenzied account is the first sustained study of Canada’s first wartime election, and taps an extensive range of new private and public sources in its detailed look at the string of blunders and missed-opportunities that put Canada’s national unity on the line in 1917. A sobering reminder that politics matters!

— Dr. Greg Donaghy

In this work of deep scholarship and gripping narrative, Dutil and MacKenzie provide new insight into the political battles that raged throughout the country as Canadian soldiers were fighting and dying in Flanders fields.

— Tim Cook, C.M.
