A fascinating account of Canada's military history and the role Canada's troops have played on foreign soil.

In this important new book, Jonathan Webb gives young Canadians a comprehensive look at Canada's efforts in wars ranging from the Boer War of 1884 up to the war in Afghanistan. Each section provides an overview of the wars themselves, and the circumstances under which Canada and Canadians became involved, whether government-directed or by personal conviction. What emerges is a fascinating story of our growth as an independent nation, along with an ever-evolving definition of the peacekeeping role our country plays on the world stage.

Moving accounts of lives saved and lives lost are ultimately what all stories of war are about. Through vivid photographs, memorabilia and staggering statistics about the men and women who have served for our country, young readers are given a fascinating look at an aspect of our country's ongoing history -- the aspect that is often the most difficult to address.

Right away I recognized the character, Adolf Hitler from reading books in the Red Maple; I will never forgive him for what he did to the Jews who were innocent and did not do anything to him; the story was pretty good.
