Title
City at War: The Effects of the Second World War on Verdun, Québec
Abstract
A study of the military, civilian and industrial contribution of Verdun, a working-class suburb of Montreal, to the Second World War effort. In 1941, Verdun’s population (67,000 people) was fifty-eight percent English speaking and forty-two percent French speaking. Nearly one-third of the English speakers were born in the British Isles. The author concludes that Verdunites of both linguistic groups exhibited an exceptionally strong sense of community identification and civic pride during the war years.
