Beyond Flanders Fields

Book - 2016
Rate this:
Most Canadians are familiar with John McCrae through his iconic poem In Flanders Fields, which was penned on the battlefields of the First World War and remains a symbol of remembrance to this day. Although he will always be remembered as a war poet, the Guelph, Ontario, native was a physician, a university professor, and a veteran of the Second Boer War before he ever laid eyes on the carnage at Flanders Fields. Citing rarely seen diary entries and letters, as well as never-before-published photos of McCraes early life, military historian and McCrae enthusiast Susan Raby-Dunne tells the complete story of John McCrae -- a man whose final chapter of life made him immortal, but who accomplished so much and helped so many in the decades before.
