Firing Lines: Three Cdn Women Write WWI

Author and historian Debbie Marshall shines a light on the lives of women in the Great War. Many journalists wanted to cover the War - few were given the opportunity. Based in London and Paris, three Canadians: Mary MacLeod Moore (Saturday Night Magazine), Beatrice Nasmyth (Vancouver Province) and Elizabeth Montizambert (Montreal Gazette), were assigned to provide the "women's viewpoint" - everything from war shortages and bombing raids to the ways women were serving near the front. Instructor: Debbie Marshall

Canada's Hnd Days Final Cmpgn WWI

With 41 years military service, Col. Maxwell shares his knowledge and passion for military history with us. In this session we learn that after four years of entrenched siege warfare, the First World War came to a dramatic end in a dynamic 100-day campaign that led to the Allies-dictated armistice of 11 November 1918. The Canadian Corps, ranks bolstered by a wave of 25,000 conscripts with more on the way, played a critical spearhead role in the defeat of the German Army. This is their story. Instructor: Colonel (Ret'd) Keith Maxwell, OMM.CD
