Author

"By taking us week by week through the war, telling how young men from British Columbia fell, Crooks connects us to the conflict and makes it seem real. We are there in the trenches with the men and they are not just numbers, they are real people with professions and families and interests."
Times Colonist

"In her new book, Names on a Cenotaph: Kootenay Lake Men in World War I, Sylvia Crooks takes a closer look at the local men who died on European battlefields in what was supposed to be the war to end all wars."
Nelson Star

"Author Sylvia Crooks delves into letters, diaries, artifacts, and photographs to discover the stories behind the names of these soldiers who bravely fought in World War I...Through this important historical book, readers can better appreciate the magnitude of the sacrifices of so many men from our small Canadian communities, and better honour these names on a cenotaph.”
