Summary
"Rehabilitating Canada's armed forces to civilian life following World War II was a massive undertaking. The Veterans Charter, the program devised by the federal government to do this, promised to provide "opportunity with security" and was one of the building blocks of the Canadian welfare state. This collection of essays by some of Canada's leading historians explores the Charter's origins, history, and benefits as well as highlighting its role in the development of the Canadian welfare state and postwar society." "The achievements of this generation of Canadian veterans are sometimes downplayed; this collection of essays puts their achievements on the historical record and pays tribute to their memory and accomplishments."--Jacket
