Battlefields of Canada
By M. Beacock Fryer
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 1986
Softcover...18.95 (C$)

Battlefields of Canada encompasses nearly 300 years of history and features sixteen of the most significant Canadian battles as well as some of the most comic or bizarre. Profusely illustrated with sketches, photographs, and detailed maps, each chapter sets the context of the battle in terms of the struggle of which it was part, and then describes the hour-by-hour events.
