Description

See below for English description.

Dans cet ouvrage, Jonathan Webb dresse un portrait fascinant de l'histoire militaire canadienne. Il traite de la formation de notre armée et de nos participations actives dans des conflits armés, comme la Première et la Deuxième guerre mondiale, la guerre des Boers, la guerre froide, la guerre du Golfe et celle de l'Afghanistan. Il explique les circonstances entourant notre implication dans ces conflits et la motivation de notre pays, ou celle de nos dirigeants, à y prendre part.

Il émerge de ce portrait une nation en croissance, qui se défi nit aux yeux du monde entier comme un joueur clé pour le maintien de la paix dans le monde.

L'histoire de toutes les guerres comporte des récits touchants de vies sauvées et de vies perdues. Photographies, témoignages et statistiques sur les hommes et les femmes qui ont combattu, aideront les jeunes à voir l'histoire fascinante de notre pays sous un autre angle, un angle qui est souvent difficile à aborder.

 

In this important new book, Jonathan Webb gives young Canadians a comprehensive look at Canada's efforts in wars ranging from the Boer War of 1884 up to the war in Afghanistan. Each section provides an overview of the wars themselves, and the circumstances under which Canada and Canadians became involved, whether government-directed or by personal conviction. What emerges is a fascinating story of our growth as an independent nation, along with an ever-evolving definition of the peacekeeping role our country plays on the world stage.

Moving accounts of lives saved and lives lost are ultimately what all stories of war are about. Through vivid photographs, memorabilia and staggering statistics about the men and women who have served for our country, young readers are given a fascinating look at an aspect of our country's ongoing history - the aspect that is often the most difficult to address.

Original title: Canada's Wars: An Illustrated History
