About this item

The dominion of Newfoundland was not prepared for war in 1914: it had no army and most residents had never even seen a soldier. Yet tens of thousands of people, driven by patriotism, duty, and a thirst for adventure, volunteered. This book traces the role Newfoundland played in the conflict. Stories of battles, heroism, heartbreak, triumph, and sacrifice are recounted in faithful detail, brought to life by dozens of archival photographs, correspondence, and newspaper clippings. It follows the Newfoundland Regiment from its beginnings, through the horror of Beaumont Hamel, and onto other battlefields.
