Books Info:

Canada at War free pdf In 1914, Canada went to war as a subject of Britain. In 1939, it made the choice to fight all on its own. Canada at War follows the developments and setbacks, wins and losses, of a nation learning to stand up for itself under the toughest possible conditions: in the midst of the most difficult war of the twentieth century. In graphic-novel format, fully illustrated and in full colour, Canada at War shows the growth of a nation's army, navy, and air forces through movingly depicted triumphs and tragedies. From the disheartening losses at Dieppe and Hong Kong through the Battle of the Atlantic and the invasion of Sicily, it focuses on the human dimension of the key battles and decisions that ultimately swung the war in the Allieds' favour. This moving, graphic account ends, after the victories of D-Day and Juno Beach and the liberation of Europe, with a final reckoning of the legacy these storied years have had on a country forged through war. Aimed at a general audience of both adults and young adults, this very human history tells the stories behind some of this country's most distinguishing military moments.
