Summary
"Embattled Nation explores the drama of Canada's tumultuous wartime election. Weeks after the Vimy offensive, Prime Minister Sir Robert Borden issued a call for conscription--the forced enrollment of Canada's men for service in the army. Most Liberals, led by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, opposed the measure, while in Quebec, a new movement emerged to fight the government. Borden resorted to unprecedented measures in order to win. Using new sources, this book examines the roots of this divisive election. Everyone had an opinion, and an enduring record of voter turnout was recorded in 1917. Dutil and MacKenzie chronicle Prime Minister Borden's new Union government and the means by which this new party was able to win the election. This was a nightmare election campaign, with English and French Canada bitterly divided over the question of what Canada's role in the war should be, and, indeed, what Canada's identity should be. The debate of one hundred years ago still resonates today."--
