Description

Remembered in Broze and Stone evokes the years immediately following the First World War, when grief was still freshly felt in communities from one end of Canada to the other. This book tells the story of the nation’s war memorials—particularly bronze or stone sculptures depicting Canadian soldiers—through the artists who conceived them, the communities that built them, and, above all, those who died in the war and were immortalized in these stunning sculptures raised in their honour. A century has passed since Canadians were scarred by the loss of more than sixty thousand sons and daughters, who now lie in faraway battlefield graves. Highlighting more than 130 monuments from coast to coast, Remembered in Bronze and Stone revives a pivotal period in history that changed Canada forever.

About the Author

Alan Livingstone MacLeod has a lifelong interest in history, nature, and writing. In 2010, after visiting the war memorial in Westville, Nova Scotia, MacLeod embarked on a research trip across Canada to visit similar First World War memorials, and soon he had amassed enough material to deliver lectures to various historical organizations across the country—and to write this book.
