Description

In the triumphs of their victories and the horrors of their losses, Canadian combatants first tested their military skills on the battlefields of Europe. In Hell's Corner, one of Canada's master historians tells the story of how Canada became involved in World War I, how it fought the war and how it emerged from that conflict a stronger and more unified nation.

Using a wealth of first-person accounts and thoughtfully chosen illustrations, Hell's Corner depicts the struggles of Canadians on both the home front and the battlefield.

This account of Canada in the Great War is enhanced by 100 black-and-white and 35 colour photographs, gathered from the collections of the Canadian War Museum, many of which have never been published before.
