Canada's Military: 1914 - Present

Dates
Nov-7-2012 - Dec-21-2012

Description
The library display team has created a display dedicated to Canada's military from 1914 to the present. The display includes library materials, images, and items that demonstrate many aspects of Canada's involvement in WWI, WWII, the Cold War, the Korean War and contemporary warfare such as the wars in Afghanistan and Kandahar. The display also emphasizes the role of women throughout Canada's military history. The display team would like to thank the faculty of Theatre & Dramatic Arts for lending us props and a costume to add interest to the display. Please note that we have displayed scanned copies of the covers of the publications Canadian Army Training Memorandum (CATM), Current Affairs, and War. These periodicals were published during WWII and are kept in the library's Special Collection.
