Book Description
Newfoundland in the First World War traces the role Newfoundland played in the conflict. Stories of battles, heroism, heartbreak, triumph, and sacrifice are recounted in faithful detail, brought to life by dozens of archival photographs, correspondence, and newspaper clippings. It follows the Newfoundland Regiment from its beginnings, through the horror of Beaumont Hamel, and onto other battlefields. Also covered are Newfoundland’s other forces, including aviators, the Merchant Navy, the Naval Reserve, and the Forestry Corps. It also includes the roles of women, both overseas and at home in Newfoundland. Readers glimpse the realities of life in the trenches, work done on the home front, and the profound and lasting effects of the war.

This interactive book includes 12 pullout facsimile documents, including
• Letters and postcards between soldiers and their loved ones
• Pages from a soldier’s scrapbook
• Excerpts from the notebooks of Cluny MacPherson, inventor of the gas mask
