To much of the world, Canada has long been seen as the nation to turn to when conflict and struggle are to be exchanged for peaceful settlement. Countless individuals have dedicated their lives to make the world a peaceful place. These are the stories of a few of those selfless people:
  • Lester B. Pearson, who first brought the notion of the United Nations as a peacekeeping organization to the fore during the Suez Crisis;
  • General Roméo Dallaire, whose efforts to stop the genocide in Rwanda brought him awards and decorations for his career but haunting memories;
  • Mark Isfield, whose love for children prompted him and his mother to give small woollen IZZY dolls to children in war-torn countries and who lost his life in a minefield in Croatia;
  • Colonel Donald Ethell, who negotiated the exchange of prisoners of war between the Syrians and the Israelis in the Middle East conflict;
  • Robert Alan Short and Robbie Beerenfenger, who gave their lives in a minefield during Canada’s peacemaking operations in Afghanistan;
  • General Lewis Mackenzie, who delicately balanced the world media to negotiate peace between the Croats and the Serbs in Yugoslavia;
  • and more.
Canadian Peacekeepers is part of Folklore Publishing's Great Canadian Stories series on Canadian history and biography.
