Canada Under Attack
By

Rating
Canadians have been celebrated participants in numerous conflicts on foreign soil, but most Canadians arent aware that theyve also had to defend themselves many times at home. From U.S. General Benedict Arnolds covetous attempts to declare Canada the 14th colony during the American Revolution to the German U-boat battles in the Gulf of St. Lawrence in the Second World War, Canada has successfully defended itself against all invaders. Jennifer Crump brings to life the battles fought by Canadians to ensure the countrys independence, from the almost ludicrous Pork n Beans War to the deadly War of 1812. She reveals the complex American and German plans to invade and conquer Canada, including the nearly 100-page blueprint for invading Canada commissioned by the U.S. government in 1935 a scheme that remains current today!

Reviews

"To those who would argue that our history is boring, freelance journalist and author Jennifer Crump offers Canada Under Attack, part of Dundurn's Canadians at War series. With crisp writing and a fast pace, Crump tells 13 fascinating stories about moments in which our country was threatened by a foreign power, starting with the 17th century struggle between the French and English...each chapter brings something interesting to the table, and even a seasoned reader of Canadian history may learn a thing or two." -- Quill and Quire October 2010
