Civil War
Civil War by @Thorvald (El Thorvaldo)

My second submission to DYOS IX.

Having acquired Resistance back in March of '07, I'd spent the ensuing months catching up on OFP mods. Two of these were unit packs for Canada (Operation Northstar – multiple sources) and Ukraine, and this page was a spur-of-the-moment idea to show them off. More thematically, Canada has the third-largest share of the Ukrainian diaspora: a concerted immigration campaign in the early 1900s targeted eastern Europeans to work the Prairies, which no doubt offered comforting familiarity to steppe farmers.

The final panel becomes bittersweet in hindsight, as four years later Stephen Harper axed the Canadian Wheat Board as part of his ongoing campaign to privatize the entire country.
