The Last Day, the Last Hour: Currie Libel Trial
Charged by a newspaper editorial that he needlessly wasted lives by sending troops into battle on November 11, 1918, the last day of the great war, Sir Arthur Currie (Canada's most illustrious general of WW I), sued for libel and retained W.N. Tilley, K.C., the leading lawyer of the day. This book reconstructs the events leading up to the trial and the trial itself, one of the most sensational in Canadian history.
