Rate this:
"During the "Hundred Days" campaign of the First World War, over 30 percent of conscripts who served in the Canadian Corps became casualties. Yet, they were often considered slackers for not having volunteered. <i>Reluctant Warriors</i> is the first examination of the pivotal role played by Canadian conscripts in the final campaign of the Great War on the Western Front. Challenging long-standing myths, this book examines whether conscripts made any significant difference to the success of the Canadian Corps in 1918. <i>Reluctant Warriors</i> provides fresh evidence that conscripts were good soldiers who made a crucial contribution to the war effort."--
