Nova Scotia at War 1914–1919

Nova Scotia at War 1914–1919

by Brian Douglas Tennyson

THE MOST TRAUMATIC COLLECTIVE EXPERIENCE in Canadian history—an in-depth study of Nova Scotia’s role in the First World War.

The war effort was more than just the brave soldiers and sailors who went overseas; it was also the civilians who worked in the fishery, on the farms, and in the forests, coal mines, and steel mills.

Professor emeritus in History at Cape Breton University, Brian Tennyson examines the economic impact of the war, which shattered Nova Scotia’s dream of becoming the Atlantic gateway and the industrial heartland of Canada.
