Written by Robert Livesey and illustrated by A.G. Smith.
Published by Fitzhenry & Whiteside Ltd., 2006.


The Great War is a new addition to the bestselling Discovering Canada series. The Great War (1914-1918) inspired courageous heroes and established a proud Canadian nationalism, but it was a devastating, horrific bloodbath that killed or maimed almost half of Canada's brave soldiers in deadly battles such as Ypres, the Somme, Vimy Ridge, and the final 100 days.

Young readers will discover Canada's part in the first great worldwide conflict. They will learn about life in the trenches, the first tanks, U-boats and convoys, aces and dog fights, machine guns and cavalry charges, gas warfare, as well as the drastic changes in women's roles and heroes such as Billy Bishop and Francis Pegahmagabow.

Robert Livesey's engaging text and A.G. Smith's detailed pen-and-ink illustrations, as well as many hands-on activities, encourage kids to learn about Canada's role in World War I. Includes index.

Suitable for ages 8+ (Grades 3 and up).
