Canadian Stories of World War One


Author(s): Multiple
Edited by Bernadette Rule

World War One is often spoken of as the defining moment for Canada as a country. People engaged in that war on the premise that it was the war to end all wars. Engraved is a collection of stories and essays with an underlying focus on how WWI changed Canadian society. Many tell of ordinary people whose absence – and/or return – transformed their families. Others are about extraordinary men and women: Georgina Pope, Canada’s first military nurse; John McCrae, the battlefield doctor who wrote the iconic poem, “In Flanders Fields”; and war artist A.Y. Jackson, whose vision was altered by the devastation he witnessed in France. By this act of remembering we hope to move closer to their goal of ending all war.
