Issue Cover

Legion  |  September-October 2014  


FACING OFF ON A HISTORICAL CONTROVERSY

John Siebert, a policy analyst with Project Ploughshares, faces off against air force historian Hugh A. Halliday on the question of whether the dropping of the atomic bomb on Japan was justified.

A WIDOW’S GRIEF

Families are also casualties of war—as seen in Staff Writer Adam Day’s piece on how difficult it is for those left with just memories to carry on. In Byron Greff’s Wedding Ring, Day describes the grief felt by the widow of the last Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan.

THE BREWING BATTLE

While the Second World War heated up in Europe, Canada experienced a shortage of beer as politicians took sides between the growing temperance movement and the mighty brewing industry. Writer Matthew Bellamy looks at Mackenzie King’s clumsy attempt to find a compromise.

TIGHTENING THE BELT

Close to a thousand Legion delegates gathered in Edmonton in June to discuss membership and the financial future of The Royal Canadian Legion. We have a full report on what turned into a raucous business session. We also introduce you to the team elected to lead.
