Deborah Cowley, Editor
"... provides insights into the triumph of the human spirit over the worst of total war." -- Sidney Allinson -- Times Colonist, April 14, 2002 "Cowley constructs a carefully crafted backdrop. Her unobtrusive marginal notes and brief editorial comments provide necessary detail, but they do not detract from the power of Vanier's words. Readers will be swept along by Vanier's pride for his battalion, and his love for French Canada." -- Ian Miller -- The Beaver, Nov 2001 "Cowley has done a nice job of integrating the letters with diary entries, and has limited her contribution to a few well chosen contextual passages and footnotes." -- Canadian Military History Book Review Supplement, Jan 2001 "Deborah Cowley and Dundurn Press have done an excellent job of pulling together the writings of this remarkable man and adding useful commentary to provide continuity and explain the campaigns." -- esprits de corps, March 2001 "... a fine legacy from one of the country's most illustrious leaders." -- Nancy Schiefer "I am certain almost anyone who respects Vanier and our war efforts will want to own this book. My understanding of Canadian history has been enriched." -- Judy Rinfret -- IMAGE, Dec 2000
