This fall we acknowledge the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War and honour the sacrifices of our soldiers past and present with the Governor General Award-winning story, The Wars. By one of Canada’s most distinguished authors, this Canadian classic follows young Robert Ross from his Toronto family home to the muddy battlefields of France. Intense and powerful, The Wars reminds us of the sacrifice of our soldiers in the “war to end all wars.“

“One of the greatest people I have ever worked with was Timothy Findley. He was intensely patriotic and his passion for Canada was extraordinary. When he talked about this novel, he reminded me that we all live many wars in our lives – and it is how we navigate them that defines us.” – Dennis Garnhum
