Wars, raids and rebellions have driven the history of Canada forward from the earliest days of New France, through the two world wars to the present day. Beginning with the Battle of Lake Champlain in 1609 and ending with the second Battle of Panjwaye in 2006 (part of the war in Afghanistan), Great Canadian Battles features conflicts in Canada and abroad. Author Edward Humphreys analyses the tactics, tragedies and triumphs of Canadian warfare, including military feats such as Colonel de Salaberry's unlikely victory at Chateaugay and the famous Battle of Vimy Ridge. Battles Include: - Quebec, 1775 The New Year's Eve assault, fought during a blizzard, that marked the final attempt to capture the fortified city. - Cut Knife, 1885 The brilliant victory of Poundmaker over the united forces of the North-West Mounted Police, Canadian Army and local militias. - The Somme, 1916 The horrific battle in which tanks were deployed for the first time.
