With this action, Canada went to war for the next 4 years. More than six hundred thousand Canadians were to take part in The Great War and more than sixty thousand of them would not return. All of them, the living and the dead, are to us now men of another age. What were they like? How did they go? In this gripping series of seventeen programs, you will hear the answers in their own voices.

You will also hear first hand accounts of the famous battles like Vimy Ridge, the Somme, Arras, Amiens, Passchendaele and follow Canadas coming of age in the air, on land and in the sea. This series was originally broadcast on CBC radio in late 1964. This series is dedicated to the memory of the people that served Canada so bravely.
