free read Valour Road characters Valour Road ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook characters ñ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ John Nadler The First World War lasted for four years and three months And when it ended on November 11 1918 the people of Pine Street a sleepy avenue on the outskirts of Winnipeg came to a startling realization During the course of the conflict young Leo Clarke Robert Shankland and Fred Hall all from their street h. Valour Road is the name of a street here in Winnipeg so named because three residents of the street originally named Pine Street were awarded the Victoria Cross in WWI Mr Nadler has taken on the task of relating the stories of these three valorous men see I didn t use the H word and weaving their individual histories into this single very readable offeringNadler is thorough at least insofar as the scope of his story is concerned He starts at the start so to speak and covers the story right from before enlistment to repat He gives a competent account of the horrors of fighting in the trenches and the soldiers duties and fatigues when not actually in the front line Few details of the whole WWI experience are left outIn fact I would have been prepared to say that this was almost a perfect WWI book except Nadler didn t do his % RESEARCH He got me seething when he wrote on Page 39 The Pathfinder s magazine exploded and the ship went down in minutes the first vessel in history sunk by a submarine Everyone who dabbles in military history knows that the USS Housatonic was the first ship sunk by a sub way back in the US Civil War having famously been sent to the bottom by the sub HL Hunley Now if Mr Nadler had stipulated that Pathfinder was the first ship to be sunk by a torpedo fired from a submarine he would have been on safer ground So right off the hop 39 pages in he almost spoils a book I had been aching to read This put me in a niggly nit picking frame of mind and I wondered what else I could findNadler did not disappoint On Page 197 I found this stroke of genius Leo now packed a Colt automatic revolver and three clips of ammunitionSay what An automatic revolver Where can I get one of these military marvels for my collection Good grief man it s either a revolver or an automatic it can t be both To prove that he is consistent in his ignorance on Page 206 he provides his Colt s hammer fell on an empty chamber His clip of seven bullets was emptyI know that in the cop shows on TV you can see models in high heels shooting it out with criminals and naturally when they run out of ammo the slide locks back and the luckless criminal pulls the trigger with a couple of audible clicks In real life this doesn t happen because the hammer is held back by the slide and conseuently cannot fall on an empty chamber A small point Perhaps but I think it s important for the credibility of the book to have someone read the darn thing over before going to press If you are wrong on a couple of points it makes me wonder just how much research you have messed upAll that aside and excepting Nadler s distracting journalistic trait of putting uotation marks around half of the words and phrases in the book I found this to be a fitting tribute to three brave men of the CEF Housatonic cost it the fifth star

I don t know a lot about historical world conflicts When we were young and learning the basics of it in school at Remembrance Day services a lot of the details were too gruesome to speak to children about I also found that as I got older and asked people closer to the war I was met with It was horrible It is not something you really want to know about Veterans tended to speak of their experiences in vague ways and were not proud but felt they were just doing their duty a necessary evil So I found this book informative in many ways about the general events leading up to the war and how it proceeded It s not the most thorough and detailed information on WWI but it definitely helped me to understand about the events especially those of the Western FrontI chose to read this book exactly because of school Remembrance Day services Valour Rd is in our current neighbourhood and really all I knew was that 3 men boys who lived on what was once Pine Street received the Victoria Cross and the street name was changed to Valour Rd My kids heard this story at school and wanted to know about them and I really had nothing to tell Did they all die What did they do to receive the medal How old were they etc No other neighbourhood block in the British Empire has 3 people who have received the highest medal of valour the empire had to offer It will be good to be able to speak to my kids about itThe other interesting thing is that one of our back lane neighbours is Paul Clarke Charlie Clarke s grandson Much of this book information is taken from Charlie Clarke s memoirs telling not only his amazing war story but that of his brother Leo who died during WWI on the day he was conferred the Victoria Cross Paul s father was named Leo after his uncle whom he never met We don t know the Clarke family well but enough to say hello This again reminds me how everyone has a story to tell a story we don t always see or know from the surface
