(Gananoque, ON) The Branch 92 Royal Canadian Legion in Gananoque will be hosting a launch of the book, Voices from the Past: Canadian Letters from the First World War, on Saturday May 10 at 2:00 pm.
“The book contains about 100 letters from local men and women and about 125 from other Canadians,” says historian Bill Beswetherick.
The 297 page volume gives a very personal look at the experiences of these people during the great War to End All Wars.
Printed in an 8 ½” x 11” format, it also contains 62 photographs which lend to the feel of being there during this important time.
Copies of the book may be purchased at the launch, or at the Legion itself for $27.50 each. It is highly recommended as a wonderful look at the original history of WWI, and would be an excellent choice for the serious history fan or for anyone wishing to know more about Canada’s involvement in this war.
