Description
 
Michael Benedict (ed). The sense of the heroic ordinary Canadian at war is exemplified by powerful firsthand accounts from the archives of “Maclean’s” mag., incl. a description of the last stand of the Princess Pats in WW1, & by Robert Coffman’s gripping account of how he & two of his downed crew survived on an island off the Greenland shore for 10 days during WW2. Other heroes are recognized, too: in stirring tributes to winners of the Victoria Cross & the epic tale of William Barker, who became one of the most heroic fighter pilots of all time. But there are also accounts of lost battles, death & destruction. These splendidly written articles bring the great conflicts of the 20th century alive to modern readers, & remind us of the debt we owe the men & women who fought for Canada. Ill.
