Between 1899 and 1953, three generations of young Canadians marched off to distant battlefields to fight in four different wars. From the African veldt to the fields of Flanders, the beaches of Dieppe, and the Korean highlands. The half-century also saw Canada transformed from an agricultural nation beholden to the British Empire to an industrial powerhouse closely linked to the United States.
