By Paul Hunter and Jim Rankin
A soldier's homecoming to a family that believed him dead. A POW who helped build the tunnel featured in The Great Escape. Ditching over the North Sea. Purple flowers in soldiers’ wounds. These are among the memories of 24 Canadians who served or worked in conflict zones ranging from the Second World War and Korea to the Rwandan genocide, Iraq and Afghanistan. They recall those experiences in their own words in Never Forget: More Stories from the Conflict Zones, an expanded edition of Star Dispatches’ 2012 Remembrance Day ebook, compiled by award-winning journalists Paul Hunter and Jim Rankin. These remarkable stories -- alternately searing and funny, heartbreaking and poignant -- evoke the danger, intensity and bravery of these moments, and lead to a new appreciation of these people who are our family, our neighbours and our friends.
