Tough as Nails

Hillie Foley was one of Canada’s most decorated soldiers of the First World War. He was also one of the very few men who survived from Ypres 1915 until the closing days of the war at the end of 1918. He fought at all major Canadian battles as a member of the 14th Canadian Infantry Battalion of the 1st Canadian Division. Over the past 5 years Michel Gravel has painstakingly put together Foley’s story, using letters. diaries and reminisences, and recreated Hillie Foley’s war. His exceptional research has produced an exceptional book.
