The Bravest Canadian Reviews
"Canada has many war heroes, but the only one to receive multiple awards for valour in both world
wars is a true child of the Maritimes: Captain Frederic Thornton “Fritz" Peters, VC, DSO, DSC and bar, DSC (U.S.),
RN…The Bravest Canadian ... is based on a recently-discovered treasure trove of family letters of the Grays
and Peters going back to the 1700s, including 27 letters written by Fritz that give insight into his personality
and motivations that resulted in exceptional courage and coolness in battle."
"A fascinating look at an interesting man...the author has done a good job in giving the reader
a glimpse of the character of him."
—Nelson Star "Until recently, the story of Capt. Frederic Thornton 'Fritz' Peters, VC, DSO, DSC and Bar (Sept. 17, 1889 - Nov. 13, 1942) was shrouded in mystery, but thanks to the discovery of hundreds of personal letters written by Peters to his family, and subsequent research, the legend of 'The Bravest Canadian' has come to light."
—Monday Magazine "The story of Capt. F.T. (Fritz) Peters...includes battlefield heroics, shadowy spies and political manoeuvring that might well have been torn from a work of fiction."
