Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eh? but of course! Canadian War history usually focused a bit on Wolfe and Montcalm on the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, the War of 1812 (again mostly British with Canadian Militia sprinkled in) ,Battles of Vimy and Passchendaele, Dieppe and the Landings of Normandy. But it turns out there was so much more in between 1609 and 2006, from Champlain to Panjwaye (part of the war in Afghanistan). I wish the Battle for the Dutch Scheldt and landing on Sicily was included but otherwise it was an inspiring read. Many of the places listed in the Wars of the 1800's still exist and I found myself very engaged in reading this. For Canadian History buffs, a must read, and the same for War History buffs. Two Thumbs up!
