304 pp., large 8vo (9 1/4"H). Cartoon endpapers by Fran Dowie. B&w illustrations. "When VE Day finally came, it erupted with glorious celebrations, tears, and cries of victory. It was a sweet day and a bitter one for millions of people whose lives had been forever changed. This day, and long days of war that led to it, are brought to life in (this book). More than 300 Canadians tell their own stories of the Second World War - stories of courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and glory. It was one of the most trying times in Canadian history, and these ordinary men and women rose to the extraordinary challenge laid before them. Their stories are celebrated here, woven into a compelling narrative of the Canadian wartime experience, bringing the past vividly to life. Here are tales from noted war correspondents Scott Young and Matthew Halton; stories of home-front rationing, shortages and endless bureaucracy; horrific memories of Buchenwald - and Canadian internment camps; hair-raising bomber command stories; revelations of the repatriation controversy; and hilarious accounts of wartime entertainers, including Wayne and Shuster and the crew of 'Meet The Navy'." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine; place date, and signature in ink on title page. Dust jacket has some very light edge wrinkling, minor rubbing.
