Praise

“George Blackburn never stopped thinking like a reporter…Reporters often find the human side gets lost in the scope of the event. Never in Blackburn’s books. I spent the weekend in Where the Hell Are the Guns? and loved it.”
–Dave Brown, columnist, Ottawa Citizen

“Blackburn’s story of the pre-invasion years of World War II…is every soldier’s story – the most compelling account yet of Canadian soldiers preparing for battle. Blackburn has the gift of taking the reader back to those times; his anecdotal, present-tense style makes history live. His three books are all the average person needs to fully understand the war and, more significantly, the men who fought it.”
–Peter Worthington, columnist, Toronto Sun

“With this book, George Blackburn has completed his trilogy – and what a trilogy it is. History, humour, and humanity cohabit on these pages and give us a truly remarkable ride through the war years. What a blessing it is that Blackburn lived through those events to pass it down, in extraordinary context, to future generations.”
–Tom Clark, National Editor, BBS-TV

“George Blackburn’s books are historical gold mines – and Where the Hell Are the Guns? is no exception. This is a penetrating account of wartime in Canada and overseas. It is also a deeply emotional love story in which Blackburn tells of his courtship with his wife and conveys a soldier’s feelings of loneliness and panic, knowing full well he may never return. This book deserves to be read as much or even more than the other two.”
–H. Clifford Chadderton, Chairman, National Council of Veteran Associations
