The First World War profoundly affected every community in Canada. In Regina, the politics of national identity, the rural myth, and the social gospel all lent a distinctive flavour to the city's experience of the Great War. For many Reginans, the fight against German militarism merged with the struggle against social evils and the "Big Interests," adding new momentum to the forces of social reform, including the fights for prohibition and women's suffrage. James M. Pitsula traces these social movements against the background of the lives of Regina men who fought overseas in battles such as Passchendaele and Vimy Ridge. Skillfully combining vivid detail with the larger social context, For All We Have and Are provides a nuanced picture of how one Canadian community rebuilt both its realities and myths in response to the cataclysm of the "war to end all wars."
