Remembered in Bronze and Stone—Canada's Great War Memorial Statuary
Canada lost over 60,000 sons
and daughters in the First World War.
They are remembered in monuments
erected across the country,
when our grief was still fresh.
Accompanied by terrific photographs,
Alan MacLeod shares 130
monuments, from every province.
He tells the story of the nation’s
war memorials through biographies of
the artists who crafted them, insights
into the communities that struggled to
build them and continue to maintain
them and, above all, through family
histories of the fallen soldiers immortalized in these stunning sculptures raised in their honour.
