This book takes students on a journey through WWI. This story follows the main character, Frank and how the war affected his life in many ways. From first hearing of it, to being enlisted, to being shipped off and fighting; this book brings to life the adventure of a soldier. This book in particular depicts the journey of a Canadian Soldier, and is a good way to show students that it wasn’t just the United States that were helping toward the war effort.

This book can be used during a unit on WWI, or in describing the life of a soldier during wartimes. Students can compare what they do on a day-to-day basis to a soldier; examining what we take for granted in our everyday life, along with what others have sacrificed for our freedom. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0888994818, Hardcover)

In August 1914, when war breaks out in Europe, Canadians rush to join the army to fight with the Allies, expecting to be home by Christmas. Everyone thinks the war will be over in a few months. But by the time the war ends in 1918, nearly 10 million soldiers and 13 million civilians are dead. The especially brutal conditions the soldiers face are portrayed in a spare, straightforward style that neither glorifies war nor dwells on the horror. No one reading this book will come away with anything other than sorrow for the tragedy and futility of “the war to end all wars.” Debon’s well-researched and realistic illustrations add a wealth of texture and detail to this story.

A young soldier's initial enthusiasm for the war effort turns to bitterness.
