Publisher's Summary

Highlanders Without Kilts is a story of love, war, uncommon disaster, and triumph. In 1917, the world was embroiled in a terrible war, the likes of which had never been seen nor imagined. Canada, still a dominion of Great Britain, was early in the fight and sent seven-and-a-half percent of its population to fight for King and Country, ultimately contributing a force of more than 600,000 soldiers, nurses and chaplains. In April of that year, the entire Canadian Expeditionary Force, fighting together for the first time, battled their way to the top of Vimy Ridge in northern France. In December, the city of Halifax was rocked by a devastating accidental explosion that caused 9,000 casualties. Highlanders Without Kilts is the story of one Nova Scotia battalion's odyssey, and one family's dreadful loss. From the unspeakable death and destruction came a nation's altered sense of self and a newborn path to its future.

Engaging story and engrossing history

Mixes a captivating personal story, local Canadian lore and portion of tragic WWI history( largely forgotten) in a way that pulls you along. Storytelling at its best.
