Canada has a distinct and proud past when it comes to heroic struggles endured by our soldiers. This past is compellingly recounted in Canadian Battles.

From the War of 1812 to Vimy Ridge, the Dutch Liberation and even peacemaking efforts in Bosnia and Afghanistan, battles have been fought—and won—by the brave men and women who believed in freedom for all. Learn about Canadian participation in conflicts spanning continents and decades. These are few of the stories:
  • Battles for land and power fought between French and British colonists and First Nation tribes beginning in the early 1600s
  • Canadian struggles against America, including an unsuccessful assault by American troops on Quebec City in 1775 and the more famous War of 1812 in which the White House was burned
  • Still under British control, Canada fought on the side of the king in the world's first global war, the Seven Years’ War and later in the Boer War in South Africa
  • Rebellions within Canada, led by legendaries such as Louis Riel and met with the strength of Canadian forces fighting to keep the country unified
  • Other clashes on home soil including the infamous FLQ crisis in Québec
  • Canada played significant roles in the devastating conflicts during World War I, the Spanish Civil War and World War II
Stories of these and other conflicts await you in Canadian Battles.
