About this title

Synopsis:

No Price Too High traces Canada's role in the Second World War from the pre-war years through 1945. Canada's contribution to Allied victory was significant in determining the war's outcome and surprising in its scale and variety. Both at home and overseas, Canada played a role in World War 11 far larger than its population of 11 million warranted. The No Price Too High multimedia series relies on original sources - personal letters and diaries, photographs, war-time film footage, and radio broadcasts - to evoke the mood of those momentous years. The thoughts, hopes, dreams, fears and heartbreaks of the generation of Canadian who faced the war are captured in this book and the video and CD-ROM which are available separately.

No Price Too High is a belated tribute to a whole generation of young Canadians whose courage ensured victory, and who spirit endured in the confident and generous society that later emerged.

From the Back Cover:

The Canadian contribution to World War 11 was extraordinary in scale and variety. More than one Million people, out of nation of just eleven million, volunteered to serve. To transform a small, virtually unequipped military into a powerful army, navy and air force was a remarkable achievement. No Price Too High traces Canada's involvement from the prewar years through 1945, explaining the events of the war in the context of the political and military realities of the time. There is none of the second guessing that has characterized so much recent analysis of the war.

The men and women of the army, navy, air force and merchant navy, their sweethearts and families, as well as those who served on the homefront, are portrayed in their own words. No Price Too High draws on original sources -personal letters and diary entries, and powerful photographs- to evoke the mood of those momentous years. The thoughts, hopes, dreams, fears, and heartbreaks of the generation of Canadians who faced the war are captured.

When producer Dick Nielsen of Norflicks Productions set out to make his documentary series, No Price Too High, he was determined to explain events of the war from the perspective of the men and women who lived through it. In this book, historian Terry Copp has collaborated with Nielsen to write a narrative that remains true to that vision. In doing so, he offers a powerful interpretation of the war years.

This is a book to make current and future generations of Canadians proud of their past. It gives greater meaning to the phrase "Lest We Forget".
