The following is from a letter sent to various Legions

Sixty years ago they held a war for us, then the generals wrote their books, our heroes' exploits were documented, and most of the rest of us just went about the business of being civilians. One veteran I interviewed while on vacation in the Maritimes told me: "They did a book about my regiment - but you wouldn't know there were any privates in the outfit." Oolichan Books, in affiliation with Lantzville Legion, announces the publication of "WE WENT WHERE THEY SENT US … and did as we were told (most of the time.)" A Canadian history of WWII, written by veterans and others, who never had much of a say in how the war was run. The stories are marked with courage, poignancy and humour, that give the reader new perspectives from not only Canadians of the time, but also newer citizens who endured the Hitler regime and survived to tell of their experiences too. "We went where they sent us" contains photographs, and historical documents, in 288 pages of 8"X10" 80 lb. matte coated paper, perfect bound, a laminated cover with flaps, and won't look out of place on any coffee table. The market for good reading material,is enhanced by the constantly diminishing quality being churned out by the entertainment industry. The poor choice of TV programming makes a good read by the hearthfire in the wintertime, and/or in a shaded hammock on a lazy summer day, more satifying than anything else one can do, (especially in a hammock) other than sleep. "We went where they sent us" sells @ $39.95 +GST, can be ordered from Branch 257 Royal Canadian Legion, 7225 Lantzville Road box 209 Lantzville, B.C. V0R 2H0. But please check your local Legion branches and book stores first as distribution is improving daily.
