John McCrae's War: In Flanders Fields

Generations of schoolchildren have recited "In Flanders Fields"' on Remembrance Day, but poet John McCrae and Alexis Helmer--the young man whose death inspired the poem--have faded from memory. This film chronicles McCrae's life, from his childhood in Ontario, his years in medicine at McGill University and to the battlefields of Belgium, where he cared for wounded soldiers.
