Overview

On October 29, 1930, the stock market crash ushered in the Great Depression, beginning a decade of poverty and hardship. The Depression was only the beginning. Ten years later, World War II began, which would last until 1945. With the end of the war, the world changed forever as the Cold War began, a time of hostility and suspicion between communist countries like the Soviet Union and democratic nations such as Canada, Britain, and the United States.

This book describes Canada's place in the world events taking place in the first half of the twentieth century. You will learn how the Great Depression drove so many Canadians to despair, while young men from work camps across Canada set off on the On-to-Ottawa Trek to take their complaints straight to the prime minister. You will read about Canada's experiences during World War II and how German U-boat submarines entered Canadian harbors and sank civilian ships. You will discover Canada's place in the Cold War and the part Canadians played in the founding of such organizations as the United Nations and NATO.
