Text by Mark Zuehlke. Maps by C. Stuart Daniel.
Paperback edition published by Douglas & McIntyre Ltd., 2006 (Hardcover edition published in 2001).
|The visual story of Canada's distinguished fighting record is
told in detailed maps and succinct text.
From the plains of Abraham to Vimy Ridge to peacekeeping efforts in Bosnia, Canadian soldiers have long offered the greatest sacrifice with tremendous skill and courage. Now, in one stunning full-colour volume fully updated and for the first time in paperback, the battlefields on which Canadian soldiers fought so valiantly have been mapped out.
Canadas most storied soldiers and regiments live on in the pages of this book: Samuel de Champlain, James Wolfe, the Patricias, the Van Doos, the Seaforth Highlanders, the Hasty Ps, the Strathconas, the Royal Canadian Regiment, the brave Canadian airmen of the RAF and RCAF, and our sailors in the Royal Canadian Navy.
Mark Zuehlke, widely regarded as Canadas pre-eminent military historian, adds historical background and insightful commentary to C. Stuart Daniel's more than eighty intricately detailed maps of four hundred years of Canadas battlefields. The French and Indian Wars, the Battles of Ypres and Passchendaele, Dieppe, D-Day, Korea and Kosovo -- Zuehlke and Daniel have painstakingly researched every battle in every war, on the ground, in the air and at sea.
