Business and the War
Business and finance in the First World War have not been investigated as thoroughly as for the Second World War. However, Michael Bliss's biography of Sir Joseph Flavelle, one of an increasing number of works investigating the business community generally, devotes considerable discussion to Flavelle's work as Canadian chair of the Imperial Munitions Board. Peter Rider's Ph.D. dissertation is a general account of the work of the Board. See also Sullivan's Aviation in Canada, in The War in the Air section, regarding the Imperial Munitions Board and the aviation industry in Canada.
