Bombs and Barbed Wire reveals the commitment and bravery displayed by the approximately 24,000 Acadians who voluntarily joined the war effort during the Second World War. Battling both language barriers and a culture of exclusion, they overcame frustrations and prejudice to fight for the freedom of the country they loved.
Based on extensive, in-depth interviews Cormier conducted in 1990 with eleven surviving Acadian veterans, Bombs and Barbed Wire brings to life the experience of Acadian soldiers for English-language readers for the first time.Author: Ronald Cormier
