    The first book of its kind, Canadians at War fills a gap in heritage travel literature that has existed since the Armistice. Evans Shaw made her first visit to the battlefields of World War I in , where she realized that there was a dearth of material for Canadians.   Published to coincide with the th anniversary of the start of the First World War, Canada's Great War Album is an unprecedented and remarkable collection of Canadian photographs, memorabilia, and stories of the war. Two years ago, Canada's History Society invited Canadians to tell their family stories from the First World War.

      Book Review: Capturing Hill 70 is an excellent publication that explores one of Canada’s least-well-known major battles of the First World War. Coming on the heels of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, the Battle of Hill 70 took place from August 15 to 25, More than 8, Canadian soldiers were killed, wounded, or taken prisoner. Dedicated to "the Canadian Homemaker Whose Time is so Generously Devoted to the War Effort," this book offered hints on keeping the family fit, how to stretch the meat ration, wartime ingredient substitutions, "colourful salads in wartime menus," and desserts under rationing.

    The South African War () or, as it is also known, the Boer War, marked Canada's first official dispatch of troops to an overseas war. In , fighting erupted between Great Britain and two small republics in South Africa. Canada’s conscious and successful striving after unity should be borne in mind as we examine another great and permanent problem of the country: preserving and encouraging harmonious relations between French Canada and English Canada. In this connection “English” Canada means all the population, whether of British or other origin, that.
