Great Canadian War Stories shows how the experience of Canada at war captured the imagination of fiction writers across the country. With selections from Timothy Findley, Joy Kogawa, Louis Caron, Thomas H. Raddall, Earle Birney, Roch Carrier and others, this audiobook chronicles the scope of Canadian war efforts in the first half of the twentieth century. From the trenches of the Western Front to the plains of the Spanish Civil War, from the skies of North Africa to the jungles of Borneo, Canadian writers present the face of war in its many guises. There are women and children who have lost their homes, and men who have lost their dreams and lives. There are strangers brought together by accident and bound in loyalty. There are adventurers and deserters, volunteers and victims, all revealed with an unmistakable authenticity of voice.
