My name is Matt Barrett- historian, animator, illustrator, and caricaturist. I hold a PhD in history from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Beginning in the centenary year of the First World War, I started this blog to detail the biographies, experiences and personalities of each and every CEF battalion commander. Check out my YouTube Animations.

I am author of Scandalous Conduct: Canadian Officer Courts Martial, 1914–45 (UBC Press, 2022). I am co-author and illustrator of Through Their Eyes: A Graphic History of Hill 70 and the First World War (MQUP, 2022).
