9780802098528: A Nation in Conflict: Canada and the Two World Wars (Themes in Canadian History)

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:

‘A fascinating glimpse into wartime Canada... The authors succeed in delivering a readable, wider view of Canada’s role in the world wars.’

(J. Tucci Choice Magazine vol 53:11:2016)

‘The authors’ coverage of the two world wars is exhaustive, and very little escapes their attention... Iarocci and Keshen do largely succeed in offering us a new way of looking at Canada’s experience of the two major wars of the twentieth century.’

(Jonathan Weier BC Studies winter 2016/17)

‘This is an ideal reader for undergraduates or for those looking for an accessible text and expert analysis on Canada’s role in the two World Wars and their impact on Canadian society.’

(Tim Cook Canadian Historical review vol 97:03:2016)
