Fighting from Home: The Second World War in Verdun, Quebec

In Verdun, English and French speakers lived side by side. Through their home-front activities as much as through enlistment, they proved themselves partners in the prosecution of Canada’s war. Shared experiences and class similarities shaped responses based first and foremost in a sense of local identity. Fighting from Home paints a comprehensive, at times intimate, portrait of Verdun and Verdunites at war. Durflinger offers an innovative interpretive approach to wartime social and cultural dynamics in Quebec and Canada.rnFighting from Home will appeal to anyone interested in the history of the Canadian home front during the Second World War.
