From the earliest recorded battles on Canadian soil to Canada's overseas peacekeeping missions today, kids will meet heroic Canadians, learn about the technology of war and read chilling first-person accounts from soldiers on the battlefields. Scattered throughout are guides to museums and historic sites to visit. Visually rich, with illustrations, maps and archival photographs, The Kids Book of Canada at War is a comprehensive summary of an important part of Canadian history.
