524 pp, 10 1/4" H. B&w photographs, reproductions. Camp Vernon officially celebrated "its Centennial as an army training camp in 2008. However, historical records indicate that discussions for its formation and actual military training activities began as early as 1896. This is a book of historical events and the personal stories of people training for war. You will find these men and women to be ordinary people, foot soldiers, who lived, trained and fought and, often died for freedoms we enjoy today. Open the door to an exciting part of Canadian Military History, a journey that will take you from soldiers on horseback to warriors in massive tanks bent on terrible destruction. Read onward, to the peacetime days of Cadets, the Reserve Army and a still active institution useful daily to its founding community, always at the ready for ever imminent war in today's fragile international political environment."
