TimeKeepers Canada

The World Wars

     TiimeKeepers Canada presents our series on The World Wars. In the many years we've recorded interviews, we have heard and seen things that astonished us. War is a terrible thing.

We play these interviews and hope people will understand the terrible price humans pay for war. But on the other side of the coin, what would you do if another country was attacking you. People will defend themselves. It is everyone's right to exist as a tribe or as a country.

So as you watch these remarkable interviews, remember these seniors and veterans lived through turbulent times. A time when Canadians were there to defend the people of Canada. We should be proud of that.

From the early battles of Cryslers Farm to eye witness accounts of World War One's battle of Ypres, Vimy Ridge and the Halifax Explosion,

re-live these Canadian experiences with those who were there. You'll see a WWI fighter pilot and a battlefield nurse. From Beaumont Hamel to World War II's Great Escape, the series takes you on a journey to

the Cold War and modern times.
