Updated to Include Canada's Place in the War on Terrorism
Is Canada really a peaceable kingdom with an unmilitary people? Nonsense, says Desmond Morton. This is a country that has been shaped, divided, and transformed by war. There is no greater influence in our history, recent or remote. From the shrewd tactics of Canada's First Nations to our troubled involvement in Somalia, from the Plains of Abraham to the deserts of Afghanistan, Morton examines our centuries-old relationship to war and its consequences. A Military History of Canada is an engaging and informative chronicle of Canada at war, from one of the country's finest historians.
