Caring for veterans returning from service is just as important as preparing troops for deployment. Beyond the Line is a collection of current research presented by the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research, an organization committed to finding the best solutions to address the range of health issues arising from military service. Bringing together work by defence scientists and researchers and clinicians from several Canadian universities, contributors present their findings on topics such as mental, physical, social, rehabilitative, and occupational health, in addition to combat care. Diverse topics, ranging from technology to programs for children, add depth and dimension. Providing expert insight into healthcare for armed forces, veterans, and their families, Beyond the Line engages the research community towards the common goal of improved healthcare services for Canada's military population.

Published by McGill-Queen's University Press (Montreal and Kingston) Beyond the Line by Joan Sullivan On the morning of July 1, 1916, at Beaumont-Hamel, the men of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment climbed out of their trenches and advanced into no man's land. Eric Mackenzie Robertson went over the top on that fateful day— and survived. Almost unbelievably, just four years later, Robertson would become the first born and bred Newfoundlander to compete in the Olympics. With her engaging journalistic style, Joan Sullivan—author of the award- winning In the Field—returns to tell the story of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, a lost Olympiad, and one man's extraordinary journey through the battlefield and into history.
