Cape Bretoners in the First World War

In Their Own Words

  Editor :   Ron Caplan  
  Publisher:  Breton Books

IN THEIR OWN WORDS, rare conversations with survivors of World War One are the heart of these stories, letters, and vivid news accounts of Cape Breton’s participation. From enlistment and training to trench warfare, an intimate account from soldiers and nurses who dared to serve. Much more than Cape Breton, it speaks for Canada’s Great War soldiers — their patriotism and desire for adventure, victories and tragedies, and their scars — beautifully shared in this remarkable compilation.
