After visiting her grandfather’s grave at Sun Quarry Cemetery near Chérisy, the author felt moved to help others “connect with our past and award those men the respect they so mightily deserve”. This guidebook follows the path of the Canadian Expeditionary Force from the time they arrive in Calais, through the battlefields of France and Belgium, to the armistice at Mons. The detailed and well-researched text is accompanied by maps of the battlefields and cemeteries, along with photos of churches, monuments and the countryside as it looks today.
