From 1914 to 1918 Canada sent 400,000 soldiers overseas to fight during the first world war? 60,000 of them died. For King and Empire: Canada's Soldiers In the Great War is the story of those soldiers. Host Norm Christie uses photos and film footage from the war, excerpts from letters sent by soldiers to loved ones, and visits to old battle sites and war memorials to show us the heroism and horror of the war and how it affected Canada.
