Dispatches from the Front, by David Halton As senior war correspondent for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation during the Second World War, Matthew Halton reported from the front lines in Italy and Northwest Europe and became “the voice of Canada at war.” His gripping, passionate broadcasts chronicled the victories and losses of Canadian soldiers and made him a national icon.

In this special presentation of the TMM Lecture Series, Matthew's son David Halton examines his father’s often tumultuous personal life through excerpts from his recently published book, "Dispatches from the Front: Canada's Voice at War."

This event is a reading and book signing by the author.
