“This is a wonderful book, diligently researched and warmly told....The book captures the time and place where the war was only a few strands of barbed wire away....With all the dots connected we see a composite picture, wide in scope, deep in focus. It is painted by a man with a passionate determination not to let this big story of a little town fade into oblivion.”
- John Jordan, Steelhead, Mission, BC 2011
"This lively book will rekindle memories of a turbulent era. Peter Lanosky has skilfully brought to light a long neglected and very necessary chapter in Canadian domestic wartime history, where fear and preparation came to every doorstep of every home and into every kitchen and child’s bedroom. Peter has filled a great vacuum in our military past. Perhaps this book will become one of many to be published that chronicle how wartime came to every household, town and village and how it touches each of us."
- Bill Allan, Iroquois Falls resident and local historian
