How much of the story was the media able to tell? Find out in A Tale of Two Nations launching June 24.

s4story -- World War I, like most wars, was started by politicians and fought by ordinary men who generally had no stake in the conflict.  They fought because of patriotic fervor or a sense of adventure, and millions lost their lives as a consequence.

How did newspapers report the events of World War 1?  How much of the story was the media able to tell?

Author Melina Druga asked these very questions and weaves together details from key events in the war using contemporary newspapers as her main source.  As a consequence, the events in A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and WW1 do not have the benefit of hindsight and analysis.  The reporting is chaotic, incomplete and often inaccurate, but it paints a picture of the war as our ancestors knew it.
