1916 — A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and WW1 Part 3
“He tells us to be patient and polite. We have been both. We have never gained anything by being polite.”
The Battle of the Somme drags on in Europe and witnesses a new weapon of war – the tank. The battle receives sparse coverage back home, however, as Canadians are preoccupied with a variety of home front problems.
Meanwhile, the United States goes to the polls in a close election that pits Democrats against Republicans and Republicans against Democrats and Progressives. Suffragists also cease the moment and hope to get universal suffrage for women on the parties’ planks.
This book is for anyone who has an interest in World War 1, the history of journalism, American history, Canadian history, political history or 20th century history.
