    I was hoping for another great look at Winnipeg s history by the author of Winnipeg 1912, and I was disappointed This book looks at the war and the journey from the unbridled patriotism of 1914 to the disillusionment and rebellion of 1918 If he can follow this book up with one on the General Strike of 1919 I will just order it now.Well done.
