The dominion of Newfoundland was not prepared for war in 1914: it had no army and most residents had never even seen a soldier. Yet tens of thousands of people, driven by patriotism, duty, and a thirst for adventure, volunteered. This book traces the role Newfoundland played in the conflict. Stories of battles, heroism, heartbreak, triumph, and sacrifice are recounted in faithful detail, brought to life by dozens of archival photographs, correspondence, and newspaper clippings. It follows the Newfoundland Regiment from its beginnings, through the horror of Beaumont Hamel, and onto other battlefields.

JENNY HIGGINS is a St. John's—based writer, whose first book, Perished: The 1914 Newfoundland Sealing Disaster won the 2015 Democracy 250 Atlantic Book Award for Historical Writing. She also writes for the Maritime History Archive and the provincial Department of Education.
