The Selected Papers of Sir Arthur Currie brings to life the troubled world of Canada’s most famous general. Detailed, introspective, and comprehensive, Currie’s prolific writings illuminate events at the front and Canada’s war at home, revealing the legacy of the Great War for Canadian society. Through diaries, letters, and a final report to the government, this book presents a vivid portrait of a very private public figure.

Reviews
  • “Sir Arthur Currie, Canada’s greatest general, remains an enigmatic figure: hardworking yet boastful; possessed with a brilliant mind for war, while at times paranoid; feted within the Empire and by Canada’s allies with medals and recognition, while at home he was accused by some of being a butcher. Mark Humphries has done a service to all Canadians in providing us with an intimate glimpse into Currie’s private and public lives, through a selection of the general’s letters and diaries. This work provides deep insight into the hidden history of the man, the general, and the Canadians he commanded in the Canadian Corps.” — Tim Cook, Canadian War Museum
  • “The many sides of Arthur Currie come through beautifully in this skillfully edited collection. By bringing together a wealth of documents relating to Currie’s handling of the Canadian Corps, Mark Humphries has produced a book that will become an essential research tool for the specialist, and will offer the general reader a fascinating glimpse at the challenges faced by one of the greatest commanders of the First World War.” — Jonathan Vance, University of Western Ontario
