Description

Canadians entered World War One viewing armed conflict as a majestic affair. What they discovered was that life in the trenches was grim and the slaughter unimaginable. With victory hanging in the balance, officials at home began propping up notions of the conflict-and of the enemy-that sometimes had little to do with facts.

Editorial Review

"Keshen's well-written study provides an insightful analysis of the role of propaganda in inciting, and maintaining, a jingoistic spirit among Canadians throughout much of the war. His meticulous study details the workings of wartime censorship, the government's relationship with the media, and popular attitudes toward the war. [Recommended for] undergraduates and above." F. Krome, Northern Kentucky University, CHOICE
