The Great War

 

Introduction

The year was 1914, and the Canadians had just announced that they would aide the British with their war efforts in Europe. Over the course of the 4 year war, hundreds of thousands of Canadians risked their lives in a war that seemingly had nothing to do with them. This begs the question "Why?" Why would Canadian men at the peak of their lives risk it all to fight in a war halfway across the world. Hopefully this tour will shed some light on this question, and act as a window into the mind of young Canadians living during this turbulant time.
