Front Cover
Robin Brass Studio, 2004 - Battles - 363 pages
This is the second book in a series devoted to battles fought either to defend Canada or by Canadians overseas on behalf of their nation. Like "Fighting for Canada", it emphasises the tactical level of war, the "sharp end", and is treasured by readers of military history. The battles: Sillery, 1760. The French win the last battle at Quebec; Cut Knife Hill, 1885. The Cree nation under Chief Poundmaker, surprises a Canadian force; Paardeberg, 1900. Royal Canadian Regiment attacks across open ground swept by rifle fire -- bravery or stupidity?; Iwuy, 1918. Canadian cavalry and armour encounter a stubborn German rearguard near the village of Iwuy; Melfa Crossing, 1944. Canadians make a surprise crossing of the heavily-defended Melfa River, winning a VC.
