Updated to 2007, including Canada's war on terrorism.

Is Canada really "a peaceable kingdom" with "an unmilitary people"? Nonsense, says Desmond Morton. This is a country that has been shaped, divided, and transformed by war -- there is no greater influence in Canadian history, recent or remote.

From the shrewd tactics of Canada's First Nations to our troubled involvement in Somalia, from the Plains of Abraham to the deserts of Afghanistan, Morton examines our centuries-old relationship to war and its consequences. This updated edition also includes a new chapter on Canada's place in the war on terrorism.

A Military History of Canada is an engaging and informative chronicle of Canada at war, from one of the country's finest historians.

This is an excellent history starting in the 1700's and ending in 2007. Very well-researched and authoritative, but not too long or detailed. For a very solid introduction to Canadian military history, this is by far the best book I have read.
