Written by Jennifer Crump.
Published by Dundurn Press, 2010.


Canadians have been celebrated participants in numerous conflicts on foreign soils, but most Canadians are not aware that we have also had to defend ourselves numerous times, right here at home.

From Benedict Arnold's covetous attempts to declare Canada the 14th colony during the Revolutionary War, to the German U-Boat battles in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada has successfully defended itself against all invaders.

Jennifer Crump brings to life the battles fought by Canadians to ensure our independence, from the almost ludicrous Pork n' Beans War to the deadly War of 1812. Then Crump reveals the complex American and German invasion plans to conquer Canada. The most amazing of these plans is the nearly 100-page blueprint for invading Canada, commissioned by the U.S. government in 1935. A plan that remains current today!
