Soldier - Doctor - Poet

Linda Granfield
ISBN 9780439935616

Many people know the poem In Flanders Fields and most of them know that a Canadian, John McCrae, wrote the poem. This book tells the rest of the story. It is a biography written for younger readers. It is full of historical photos, and copies from John's drawings and writings. It is very well written and tells the story of a scholar and of a soldier's life. It is well written and presented in an awesome format, with extensive sidebars, text boxes and illustrations; a great book for all who want to remember.
