General Reference Sources

For a comprehensive understanding of Canada's participation in the First World War, the reader must look beyond such published bibliographies as Cooke or Rawling, which emphasize the purely military aspects of the war. Canadian history : a reader's guide situates the war within the historiography of the broader history of Canada. Arora, Artibise, Bishop, O'Dea and Peel all consider the war within a regional context, although some of these regional bibliographies have become somewhat dated. The reader should also look at the war in relation to other national experiences and for this, the bibliographies by Enser and those edited by Higham and Rohwer should be consulted. As well, the latter two contain useful review articles on the Canadian experience of the war.

Hyam and Lovering should be used along with the Library and Archives Canada website search tool, ArchiviaNet (see section on Websites), to identify record groups and manuscript collections at Library and Archives Canada containing material of interest on the First World War.
