In the Footsteps of the Canadian Corps
Written by 12173 Richard Gimblett & Angus Brown.
The First World War is now a memory. The people who experienced it, fought in it, and who had firsthand recollection of that time and era are now gone. Many Canadians, however, still have a connection to the Great War through memorabilia, family keepsakes and genealogical ties. This book is part history, part travelogue and part memory. Within these pages the reader can follow in the footsteps of the Canadian Corps, the premier Canadian army fighting formation during the war. Through the medium of text, art and photos the book explores the places Canadian soldiers went during the First World War and what they experienced there. All of the art and most of the archival photos are from the collections of the Canadian War Museum. Contemporary photos show many of the places as you would find them today. The narrative helps the military tourist to put those momentous events of the Great War into geographical and historical perspective.
