From the Plains of Abraham to Vimy Ridge to peacekeeping efforts in Kosovo, Canadian soldiers have long offered the greatest sacrifice with tremendous skill and courage. Now, fully updated and for the first time in paperback, the battlefields on which Canadian soldiers fought so valiantly have been mapped out in one stunning full-color volume.
Mark Zuehlke, widely regarded as Canada’s pre-imminent Military Historian, adds historical background and insightful commentary to C. Stuart Daniel’s more than 80 intricately detailed maps of 400 years of Canada’s battlefields. The French and Indian Wars, the Battles of Ypres and Passchendaele, Dieppe, D-Day, Korea and Kosovo — Zuehlke and Daniel have painstakingly researched every battle in every war, on the ground, in the air, and at sea.  More than 50 stunning photographs and illustrations of our soldiers at war complement this book’s vibrant battlefield maps and captivating prose.
