More Fighting for Canada: Five Battles, 1760-1944

Front Cover
Robin Brass Studio, 2004 - Battles - 363 pages
Here is the sequel to the popular Fighting for Canada: Seven Battles, 1758-1945 -- five more fascinating battles fought by Canadians or on Canadian soil. It is a popular myth that Canada is a peaceable kingdom and Canadians are an unmilitary people. Canada was created by armed conflict, or the threat of conflict, and throughout their history Canadians have proved to be a more warlike people than many would like to believe. More Fighting for Canada emphasizes the tactical level of war, the "sharp end," and, like Fighting for Canada: Seven Battles, 1758-1945, it is a major addition to the annals of military history in Canada.
