The First and Second World Wars were two of the most momentous events of the twentieth century. In Canada, they claimed 110,000 lives and altered both the country’s domestic life and its international position. A Nation in Conflict is a concise, comparative overview of the Canadian national experience in the two world wars that transformed the nation and its people.

With each chapter, military historians Jeffrey A. Keshen and Andrew Iarocci address Canada’s contribution to the war and its consequences. Integrating the latest research in military, social, political, and gender history, they examine everything from the front lines to the home front. Was conscription necessary? Did the conflicts change the status of Canadian women? Was Canada’s commitment worth the cost?

Written both for classroom use and for the general reader, A Nation in Conflict is an accessible introduction to the complexities of Canada’s involvement in the twentieth century’s most important conflicts.

About the Author:

Andrew Iarocci is an assistant professor in the Department of History at Western University and a former collections manager for transportation and artillery at the Canadian War Museum.

Review:

“Skilfully moving between the two world wars, carefully tying together the events from the battlefields and the home front, Iarocci and Keshen interpret the Canadian story with verve and passion. This is a first-rate introduction to Canada’s wars and how they shaped the nation.”

(J.L. Granatstein, author of 'Canada's Army: Waging War and Keeping the Peace')
