It is a myth that Canadians are an unmilitary people. Canada was created through armed conflict, or the threat of conflict, and over the years Canadians have proved more warlike than some would like to believe. The work of six military historians, this book emphasizes the sharp end, where leadership, training and experience are paramount. In scale the actions vary widely and include:. Ticonderoga, 1758. The French defeat the English (by Ian M. McCulloch). Queenston Heights, 1812. British regulars and Canadian militia defeat an American invasion (by Robert Malcomson). Ridgeway, 1866. Fenians invade the Niagara Peninsula (by Brian A. Reid). Leliefontein, 1900. A gallant rearguard action in the Boer War (by Brian A. Reid. Moreuil Wood, 1918. Rare and disastrous cavalry action in World War I (by John R. Grodzinski and Michael R. McNorgan). Le Mesnil-Patry, 1944. Enthusiasm and courage are unavailing in the face of the Waffen SS (by Michael R. McNorgan). Kapelsche Veer, 1945. Unnecessary and costly fight for a boggy Dutch island (by Donald E. Graves)
