Summary
""This is a must-have book in Canadian military and social history, representing both fields at their very best. Wood sets the record straight on one of the most discussed but nonetheless little-known concepts in our history: the militia myth. For the first time, we have a real and compelling understanding of what was once demonized in our history û the idea of being a citizen first and a soldier if necessary."û Roch Legault, co-editor of Loyal Service: Perspectives on French-Canadian Military Leaders" ""Militia Myths is an engaging and important book. It revises our understanding of military professionalism in the early twentieth century. Wood shows the distinction between amateur and professional soldiers in modern warfare to be more complex than we have come to believe. His work is sure to stimulate further study of the pre-1914 period and the impact of the Great War on Canada's armed forces."-Andrew Iarocci, author of Shoestring Soldiers: The 1st Canadian Division at War, 1914-15" "The citizen soldier is a foundational figure in the Canadian social memory of the First World War. This cultural history of the amateur military tradition, however, traces the origins of the citizen soldier ideal to long before Canadians left for the Western Front. Militia Myths explores the ideological transformation that took place between 1896 and 1921, turbulent years in which the untrained citizen volunteer replaced the long-serving militiaman as the archetypical Canadian soldier."--BOOK JACKET
