Get ready for war
Welcome fellow historian, We all know about canada's huge contribution with WW1. And I can state that because 619,636 Canadians enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the war, and approximately 424,000 served overseas. And here i'm going to add 3 factors why so many canadian soldiers volunteered for a war that is not a direct attack on their homeland.
1. Canadian's were motivated by nationalism
2. Canadian's didn't want to be titled as a "coward" back home.
3. Canadian's thought it was cool to enlist because of all the explosions and guns.
