What stubborn-hearted virtues they disguised!” Canadian Conscripts at War – 1918:

This talk will provide an overview of the principal events leading up to this historic and controversial legislation, followed by a brief examination of the vital contribution made by conscripts during the Hundred Days. The subject has long been obscured by myth and by inaccurate or incomplete history. Many of these myths will be directly addressed in this presentation.

Colonel (Ret’d) Patrick M. Dennis, OMM, CD is a retired fighter controller who served abroad for over twenty-two years, including as the Canadian defence attaché to Israel. He is a graduate of the United States Armed Forces Staff College, the NATO Defence College, and Canada’s National Security Studies Course, and holds a master’s degree in Leadership and Communication from the University of Northern Colorado. Reluctant Warriors: Canadian Conscripts and the Great War is his first book.
