This beautiful book is a moving tribute to fallen soldiers of the Second World War. Filled with examples of the inscriptions families requested for the headstones of their lost ones, the book builds around these epitaphs a tapestry of past history and present landscapes. The author takes us on a virtual tour of cemeteries and monuments all over Europe where Canadian soldiers are buried. His eloquent descriptions are richly interwoven with background information on relevant events of those years, and together with the many photographs they bring his subject to life.
