At Vimy Ridge by: Hugh Brewster

At Vimy Ridge
Canada's Greatest World War I Victory

Hugh Brewster
ISBN 0439949823

Hugh Brewster has compiled an amazing book. He combines his words telling the story, quotes from those involved in the events, artwork and historical photographs depicting the events. Even though this book is listed for children, it can really be a great book for anyone to read. There were numerous facts about the war, and specifically this battle, that I was unaware of. There is also a great bibliography so that the reader can go further; also a great index and glossary for any terms the reader is unfamiliar with. This is an excellent book for readers of all ages about events in Canadian history that we can never allow ourselves to forget.
