The 19th Battalion – which has a strong association with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada (Princess Louise’s), the regiment that perpetuates its legacy – was an infantry unit that fought in many of the deadliest battles of the First World War. Hailing from Hamilton and other communities in southern Ontario, its members were ordinary men facing extraordinary challenges at the Somme, Vimy Ridge, Passchendaele, Amiens, and other battlefields on Europe’s Western Front. Through official records and personal accounts, author David Campbell presents vivid descriptions and assessments of the rigours of training, the horrors of battle, and the camaraderie of life behind the front lines.
