Canada in the Great World War, Volume 5 - The Triumph of the Allies


Cat No.:   CA0039-5:

This is the 5th volume of the 6 volume “Canada in the Great War” set. With such a large subject spread over a total of approximately 2700 pages it is difficult to capture the contents of each volume in just a few words. Add to this that there were over 31 separate authors in all and it is inevitable that some subjects may be discussed in more than one volume. However, the following is a list of the chapter contents for this volume.

The subject matter is organized in approximately chronological order, especially given that the volumes were published individually over a period ranging from 1917 to 1921. These publication dates also indicate that what the authors are describing has the accuracy of fairly recently formed memories. On the other hand it also indicates that the writings may be influenced by the extremely emotionally disturbing events of the war.

Take particular note of the “Appendices” included in this volume, they contain valuable concentrated factual information. This volume also contains a useful chronology of significant events through the subject period.
