Marching to Armageddon: Canadians and the Great War, 19141919 and A Nation Forged in Fire: Canadians and the Second World War, 19391945 remain classic examinations of Canadas wartime experience. In Canada and the Two World Wars, these two important books are brought together in one volume, featuring a new introduction by the authors, two of the most distinguished historians in Canada. The First World War helped to create a Canadian nation. The war was a catalyst for almost every imaginable changefrom skirt lengths and sexual mores to the role of government within Canada and Canadas role within the British Empire. Much more than a military history, Marching to Armageddon evocatively recreates the effects of the war years on ordinary Canadians. All facets of war are brought home through vivid images and incisive text. A Nation Forged in Fire provides an in-depth look at the changes the Second World War brought to Canada. While Canadian soldiers fought and died in foreign lands, women moved into the workforce, industry boomed and the country became a major supplier of food and armaments. For their part, politicians used the countrys new clout to demand a voice in international decisions. Old traditions and loyalties were swept aside, and the country would never be the same.
