Description: Cathy Littlejohn’s Métis Soldiers of Saskatchewan: 1914-1953 outlines the tremendous role played by Saskatchewan Métis in Canada’s war efforts in the two World Wars and in the Korean War. This compelling book chronicles two generations of Métis who willingly enlisted and served a country that was not always kind to them. With hundreds of photographs of Métis service members and a listing of over 1,700 Saskatchewan Métis who served their country in war as well as the veterans’ often haunting reminisces of the horrors of war, this comprehensive book serves as a tribute to those Métis who fought three terrible wars to ensure that we can all live in freedom. With great reverence, Métis Soldiers of Saskatchewan discusses both the Métis veterans’ long struggle for justice as well as the supreme sacrifice of those who died for our freedom. In a poignant afterword, readers can also visit the graves of Métis soldiers who are now resting in Canadian war cemeteries in France and Belgium.
