Summary
Sir Sam Hughes - Minister of Militia and Defence from 1911 until his dismissal in 1916 - is remembered as abrasive and unstable, while Sir Arthur Currie, a part-time soldier who rose to command the Canadian Corps in France and Belgium, is remembered as one of the most effective generals of the war and a national hero. But initially, Hughes drove the nation toward a war footing and fought to keep Canadian troops from being parceled out to the British, while Currie embezzled regimental funds, never connected with his soldiers, and was accused of wantonly squandering the lives of 60,000 Canadians on the road to victory. c2010
