How did newspapers report the events of World War 1? How much of the story was the media able to tell?
Author Melina Druga asked these very questions and weaves together details from key events in the war using contemporary newspapers as her main source. As a consequence, the events in A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and WW1 do not have the benefit of hindsight and analysis. The reporting is chaotic, incomplete and often inaccurate, but it paints a picture of the war as our ancestors knew it.
A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and WW1 is the story of two North American countries that found themselves embroiled in an European war – one by circumstance and one by choice.
