Description

From the Award winning creators of The Loxleys and the War of 1812 comes a 112 page, beautifully colored, graphic novel featuring 64 page historically accurate comic strip about a Canadian family caught up in Confederation. With an accompanying illustrated summary written by acclaimed Canadian military historian Mark Zuehlke, including maps and illustrations.

The story begins in 1864 and for a second time follows the Loxleys, a Canadian family living in the Niagara peninsula. Underthe threat once more of an American invasion and the cancellation of the Canadian-American Reciprocity Treaty, the Canadian Colonies look to unite. We trail the Loxleys on their journey to the Charlottetown Conference and witness the events that lead to the Dominion of Canada. The story follows the characters through key historical events.

About the authors

Hailed by Jack Granatstein as Canadas leading popular military historian and short-listed for both the 2007 and 2013 Pierre Berton Award for popularizing Canadian history, Mark Zuehlke is the author of 26 books, including 14 devoted to military history. Tragedy at Dieppe is the latest in his bestselling Canadian Battle Series, which includes Ortona, The Liri Valley, The Gothic Line, Juno Beach Operation Husky, Holding Juno, Breakout from Juno, Terrible Victory, and On to Victory. He is also the co-author of The Canadian Military Atlas.

Zuehlke first began writing about the role Canadians played in World War II after discussing the Battle of Ortona with several veterans following a Remembrance Day ceremony in Kelowna, B.C. Discovering no book had been written on this pivotal battle, he decided to fill that gap, which resulted in the publication of Ortona: Canadas Epic Worl
