CLEMENTS, Robert N. , Captain, M.C. Merry Hell : The Story of the 25th Battalion (Nova Scotia Regiment), Canadian Expeditionary Force 1914-1919. Edited by Brian Douglas Tennyson. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (2013). First Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xxiii,(3),[3]-265,(7). 8vo, black cloth, giltlettering to spine.

Robert Clements (b. May 12, 1894 Yarmouth).

"Merry Hell is the only complete history of the 25th Canadian infantry battalion, which was recruited in the autumn and winter of 1914–15 and served overseas from spring 1915 until spring 1919. Author Robert N Clements, who served in the battalion throughout that period and rose from private to captain, wrotethe story many years after the war, based on his personal memories and exp eriences. As such, his story reflects two unique perspectives on Canadian military history – the remarkably fresh recollections and anecdotes of a veteran, and the outlook of a man eager to share what his generation contributed to the nation’s history, character, and identity.

Professional military historian Brian Douglas Tennyson buttresses Clements’s story with a valuable critical apparatus, including an analytical introduction that contextualizes the history and notes that explain unfamiliar points and people. Merry Hell is a captivating tale for those who enjoy stories of war and battle, and one that will entertain readers with Clements’s richly colourful anecdotes and witty poems, none of which have been published before." - from dj flap.

Planters Studies Series No.1.
"Between 1759 and 1768 some 8,000 New England Planters emigrated to what are now the Maritime Provinces of Canada. Known as 'planters', the old English term for colonist, they were among the first English-speaking immigrants to the area of present day Canada. Because the Acadian deportation and Loyalist migration were far more dramatic events in Maritime history than the peaceful migration of land-hungry Yankees, the Planters have received less attention than their numbers warrant. They left an indelible mark on their Maritime homeland and their influence has spread throughout North America. Descendants of the Planters include major educators, theologians, inventors, industrialists, social reformers, politicians, and at least two Canadian Prime Ministers." - from the rear cover.
