Website on the "Canadian Wartime Experience"

The Archives and Special Collections section of the University of Manitoba Libraries operates a website called The Canadian Wartime Experience: The Documentary Legacy of Canada at War. The opening page notes:
The differing roles played by Canadians during times of conflict, at home and abroad, are featured in this website. The website provides access to a portion of wartime-related textual records and photographs that have been selected from larger collections within the holdings of the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections and digitized for research purposes.
Categories listed include the Red River Resistance (1869-1870), the Boer War (1899-1902), World War I (1914-1918), World War II (1939-1945), the Korean War (1950-1953) and the Vietnam War (1957-1975). There is also an educational portion directed at Grades 4, 6, 9 and 11.
