Missed last week’s roundup? Check it out here.


This week also marked two important anniversaries, the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Hill 70 and the 75th anniversary of the Raid on Dieppe. Since there were several blog posts and news articles on each of them, I have given them each their own section. Please note that many of these articles are accompanied by graphic images that may not be suitable for all readers.

On the Battle of Hill 70

On the Raid at Dieppe


I have to say, this has been an unusually depressing week, and I think this roundup very much reflects that. However, it is great to see so many scholars speaking out about what has happened. That said, I hope you enjoyed this week’s roundup. If you did, please considering sharing it on the social media platform of your choice. And don’t forget to check back in on Tuesday for a brand new blog post about my experiences teaching a six-week course on Canada since WW2. See you then!


Addendum: Don’t forget that this Thursday and Friday, Active History, Unwritten HistoriesCanada’s History Society, and the Wilson Institute will be presenting our first ever history Twitter conference, “Beyond 150: Telling Our Stories”! For more information on how to participate and to find the schedule, please visit our website. And I’ll see you then!
