"In the aftermath of World War II, more than 4,500 Polish veterans, displaced by the war and the Soviet-oriented Polish government, were resettled in Canada as farm workers; 750 of these men were accepted by the province of Alberta. Polish War Veterans in Alberta examines how these former soldiers experienced their new country and its sometimes-harsh postwar realities. This compelling work of social history is brought to life through the words and stories of four veterans, whose remembrances provide an intimate firsthand look at a moment of Canada's past that is at risk of being forgotten."--
