Sigmund Brouwer

2017 marks the centennial of the battle of Vimy Ridge. To make this momentous event from 100 years ago come alive, Sigmund Brouwer takes a look at some of the stories of individual Canadian heroes who made a difference: there’s the border collie who warns of a gas attack, the cat who saves soldiers from rat bites and the carrier pigeon who delivers a critical message. Maybe not the heroes you were imagining? In the hands of Brouwer, bestselling author of nearly 30 novels with close to four million books in print, these animals—and the young Canadian troops who served alongside them—provide a heart-wrenching and memorable entry into four days of battle that is an essential part
of Canadian history.
