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.

From the Inside Flap:

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

Through the Cold War, the Gulf War, and after, Canadians had to make difficult decisions about defence and foreign policy, and these events have shaped the country, developing our industries, changing the role of women, realigning our political factions, and changing Canada’s status in the world.

About the Author:

A professor emeritus of history from the University of Toronto, Desmond Morton was also founding director of McGill’s Institute for the Study of Canada. He is the author of forty books on Canadian history, a lecturer at the Canadian Forces Staff College, and a frequent media commentator. He lives in Montreal.
