The Great War



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.
