Morrison: The Long-lost Memoir of Canada’s Artillery Commander in the Great War


Heritage Books 2017, SB, 259 pg.

Finally after 90 years Morrison’s lost memoir finds its way into print! E.W.B. Morrison was instrumental in the Canadian Army’s efforts and achievements throughout the War (including getting John McCrae to publish In Flanders Fields), but especially from 1916 until 1918, when he commanded all Canadian artillery, including at the battles of Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele. An accomplished journalist who was the editor of both the Hamilton Spectator and the Ottawa Citizen, Morrison recorded his experiences, strategies, darkly humourous observations, and insights into the nature of modern warfare in a memoir that he completed but never published before his death in 1925. Now, with the permission of his estate, Morrison’s words are made public for the first time, with a thought-provoking introduction by military historian Susan Raby-Dunne. is a fascinating and highly readable historical document that brings a rawness and immediacy to a century-old conflict. A truly great and important memoir.
