Nelson BC in World War II
Sylvia Crooks

This is the Canadian experience of the Second World War as seen through the eyes of one British Columbia community. It is a stirring, poignant and important piece of Canadian history. Homefront & Battlefront is the result of two years extensive research by a librarian/educator who was born and raised in Nelson, where she experienced the war years as a young child.
