Words of Valediction and Remembrance: Canadian Epitaphs of the Second World War By Eric McGeer

This profoundly moving book presents a selection of the personal inscriptions engraved on the headstones of the fallen soldiers of the Second World War.  Eric McGeer considers these final expressions of love and remembrance in light of the sources of consolation to which bereaved families turned.  Interwoven with historical details in a rich narrative style., the book speaks as much about the battles Canadians fought as it does about the valedictions of the families.
