In terms of battles, during WWI, how did Canada mature as a nation?I want to incorperate information about the battles but am not sure where to start.
In terms of battles, the participation of the Canadian army in various places, including D-Day gave the soldiers a point of pride as well as experience on the world's largest stage to bring home to their nation. It allowed the country also to share in the sacrifice and the pride from the successful conduct of this war against what was billed as a great evil by the Allies. This participation on the world stage marked in some ways Canada's ascent to the level of a participant in the big events of the world. It also forced the citizenry to think hard about what level of participation they wanted to pursue in the future whether it was in a war or other type of world events.
