The Vimy Trap: or, How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Great War
Ian McKay and Jamie Swift

The Vimy battle is, some say, Canada’s heroic founding moment. Yet the myth is rather new. This important new book questions this story. “Uncomfortable and inconvenient questions are signs of a robust culture, especially when they are about war and how it is remembered. McKay and Swift have taken up the torch with vigour, detail, and irony.” R.H. Thomson, producer, The World Remembers.
