Nelson BC in World War II
Sylvia Crooks

This is the Canadian experience of the Second World War as seen through the eyes of one British Columbia community. It is a stirring, poignant and important piece of Canadian history. Homefront & Battlefront is the result of two years extensive research by a librarian/educator who was born and raised in Nelson, where she experienced the war years as a young child.


Homefront and Battlefront has received an "Honourable Mention" by the BC Historical Federation in their annual award for historical writing. These awards are given to writers whose books contribute significantly to the recorded history of British Columbia.


Homefront & Battlefront: Nelson BC in World War II has been recorded by Public Library InterLINK's audiobook service, which makes audiobooks available to persons who are unable to handle or read books because of visual, physical or perceptual disability. The service is available through public libraries to eligible patrons.
