The Great War Album
Remembering Canada's WWI generation
Update: Canada's History would like to sincerely thank everyone who has contributed material to our Great War Album book project. Submissions will still be accepted, but due to editing and printing deadlines, any new materials received will likely be included in our online archive. Canada's Great War Album will be available for purchase in fall 2014, published by Canada's History and HarperCollins Canada.
It’s been nearly 100 years since the “War to End All Wars.” And while the veterans are gone, their legacy lives on. In 2014, Canada’s History will honour the men and women who together helped win WWI with a new book, Canada’s Great War Album.
Send us scanned WWI photos, letters, or mementoes from your family's collection and we’ll include them in our online archive. From the front lines, to the homefront — help ensure these great Canadians are never forgotten.
