Good biography brings to light not only a person's life but history unknown to the reader that causes furthe reading and research. While I was not surprised to find that Smythe had fought in both World Wars, I was surprised to find that his recognition and publicizing of Canadian "Conscription Crisis" brought down the government. This got me reading further, and discovered the Canadian government had similar issues in World War One.
Entertaining, Educational. Well written. Nicely done!
