      Sandra Gwyn was one of Canada's great popular historians who in this book took the private diaries and notebooks of ordinary and not so ordinary Canadians, mixed with snapshot histories and newspaper accounts to paint a portrait of a country coming to terms with a world wide event that was shaping it into a nation.

      I realized that I had read this book before loaning it to my Mom. It was quite a remarkable story of WWI and Canadians who played a role in it. The potential for a different prime minister is revealed. We know so little about individual Canadian war contributions, I enjoyed it.

      Sandra Gwyn provides a readable, well-researched account of Canadians during WW1 by focussing on a few interesting personalities. From Ottawa socialites to front-line soldiers to Lord Beaverbrook, we see society in transition.

      The last line of this will slay you.
