5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent analysis of post-WWI Canadian experience 8 Sept. 1997
By Wayne Ralph - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Vance's examination of post-WWI Canadian experience, and the role of religious and spiritual beliefs in endorsing the trauma of the Great War, is first class.

An interesting book to contrast with that other classic, Fussell, The Great War and Modern Memory, but Vance is a better examination of the Great War from a Canadian perspective.

Highly recommended for military historians and enthusiasts looking for a fresh perspective on the impact of the Great War on society.

Extremely well written and filled to the brim with usefull information concerning the War and all that you always wanted to know (and more). Black and white photographs and a bibiography help anyone wanting to learn more.
