Another winner from Barris. When he has written his various books about Canada's involvement in various wars, he has interviewed many veterans and historians plus read many memoirs and histories plus visited museums and libraries. In this volume, he describes how he found these veterans and more importantly, how he won their trust. In explaining this, he tells more stories that these veterans have told him. This volume includes veterans from Somalia and Afghanistan as well.
