Product Description

Review

The seed of this book, like several others Barris has written, is rooted in a deeply personal oral history.

The prolific Ted Barris has etched a name for himself as one of Canada's foremost popular historians. Barris is a natural storyteller. Breaking the Silence is an entertaining and informative read.

[Barris] is arguably Canada's preeminent chronicler of the ordinary and extraordinary experiences of soldiers in wartime and their struggles afterward.

The prolific Ted Barris has etched a name for himself as one of Canada's foremost popular historians. While still giving voice to the veterans who experiences the hell, horror and humanity of war, Barris weaves the story of getting the story into the mix. Barris is a natural storyteller. Whether he is bringing a veteran's exploits to life or detailing his own experiences, Breaking the Silence is an entertaining and informative read.
