Growing up Cold War

Book - 2012
Rate this:
When his father died, award-winning poet Gil McElroy was given a box of photographs that documented his father's work on the Canadian military's northern Distant Early Warning Line in the 1950s. Image by image, McElroy attempts to come to terms with the mysterious photographer--a man better understood by his military compatriots than by his own family--and in so doing begins to reckon with his own experience growing up as an itinerant "military brat."
Photographs and text add to the scant documentation of building Canada's DEW Line defense network.
