Abstract:

"The Canadian government censored the news during World War II for two main reasons: to keep military and economic secrets out of enemy hands and to prevent civilian morale from breaking down. But in those tumultuous times ... censors had a hard time keeping news events contained. Now, with freshly unsealed World War II press-censor files, many of the undocumented events that occurred in wartime Canada are finally revealed. [This book] investigates the realities of media censorship through the experiences of those deputized to act on the public's behalf."--Publisher's description.
